What is a good kayak that would be suitable for lakes and calm rivers, but also would be able to take beyond the breakers?

Things To Ask Yourself Before Looking At Kayaks
1) Where are you going to be fishing?
2) What's your experience level?
3) What species are you going to be fishing for and how are you going to fish?
4) How much gear or how many rods will you be bringing on the water?
5) Are you going to trailer the boat, put it in a truck bed or car top it?
6) How do you want to propel the boat, paddle, pedal, motor or sail?
7) How much do you want to spend?

I think the first thing should be figuring out where you want to use it and what type of conditions: fast moving river, out in sea; is it rocky, weedy?

Then, start with kayak type. Usually and most likely on-top for fishing purposes.

Then go get some basic recommendations for width and length of kayak based on where you want to use it and in what conditions.

Also do not forget to factor in weight and overall size when transporting kayak. People somehow often times miss the transportation aspect...

There are also finer aspects like materials: fiberglass is usual way to go, but if cheap then plastic ( https://outdoorempire.com/7-best-angling-kayaks-reviewed/ )

Then, basically go to any kayak shop online narrow selection down with your chosen features. See models and start Googling them and searching for reviews & opinions based on what you can afford.

Following these steps should get you a nice kayak!
