Hey y'all,
So here's the deal. I don't do much bass fishing but when I do its mostly in small tanks. I'm looking for a kayak and possibly a fish finder. I don't want to spend much more than $500. Probably close to around a 10 footer thats semi easy to transport. I don't want an inflatable one though. Any ideas?

For that you can get a pelican at academy.

That was my first yak, then I moved up to a Jackson Big Rig.

The ones at academy have come a long way, the $500 might just cover the yak...

Probly pick up a little humming Bird 176 for cheap... might get the job done.

Definitely check out the yak section as Bruce pointed out!

If you're going after a cheap kayak be sure and get an expensive PFD. The cheap kayaks are cheap for a reason and if you're not experienced at using one stay in shallow water until you're familiar with operating it. Hypothermia can take over really quick in this weather.

Very good suggestion, that is the kind of stuff that is taken for granted!
