Hello,
I'm new to kayak fishing and have pretty well become addicted. I'm looking to upgrade into a good boat and think I would like a pedal system to allow me more fishing and less paddling. Any thoughts or recommendations? I'm looking to stay under $1000 and will obviously be looking for a used kayak. Thanks

You can't go wrong with a Hobie Outback. It's a good compromise between stable and fast. Look for an older one with the old style seat. Lots of folks are upgrading theirs for the new seat.

FWBanger hit the nail on the head. The Outback is awesome. There are some shallow places I fish that I still use my Coosa but overall my Outback is the yak that hits the water. I preferred the new seat on the 15 but that isn't in your price range. You might be able to find a used one for what you are wanting to spend.

I've enjoyed two different types of pedal systems kayaks: Native and Hobies. All are good. I enjoyed my PA14 but weight was one of the biggest obstacles I had to overcome. Went with smaller pedal versions of Hobies and settled with the Outback series. Great for rivers, oceans and lakes. Simply put....all around kayak IMO thumb
