Comments about Malibu Kayaks Stealth-12 Fish and Dive Kayak, Sit-On-Top, Stone:
Very critical of most kayaks, but I am a 50+ trip a year angler who is happy with this one. Great capacity for one day or overnight trips, good stability, maneuverable enough with adequate tracking to make excellent fishing. Added a battery powered livewell pump for 20 bucks and haven't lost a fish in the well yet. I am 230 pounds 6'3" and have pounded this boat on hundreds of miles of river and have no complaints. Just went camping last night and the boat packed in myself and 100 pounds of gear. It is heavy, but very stiff and durable, slides over rocks easy. We float when the river is low enough that we are alone, and use ropes to drag through the dry spots, so this boat has seen some abuse.
I have seen places that talk about how the hatches leak. Mine do not leak. I have had enough experience to say that they do not leak. Open one with standing water on top (if the river sent some over the side) and of course it will get wet.
But if it is closed you are fine. Standing up fishing from this boat is not possible in most of the rivers we fish but I have done it on occasion. Not all it's cracked up to be, though the boat is fairly stable.
