I am looking for a cheap used kayak for nothing more than bait deployment from the beach.

Personally an Ocean Kayak Frenzy would be my choice, however, not finding any used ones.

However, I found a Jackson Riviera kayak for a reasonable price and looking for thoughts from anyone that has one or used one for this purpose. Found places that talk about using this particular kayak in surf but, not much info really.

Thanks in advance.

Never heard of them. Looking at their photos the bow is raised but missing a pointed nose to help cut through the surf. Think I would choose a Tarpon 100 over this.


You get out of it what you put into it!

Yeah, not wild about the bow at all. Like I said, my first choice would be an Ocean Kayak Frenzy or the Scrambler but, not finding any used ones at the moment. Hadn't seen any Tarpon 100's for that matter, lol.

Im a month late but a Jackson Riviera is what I used going down lower mountain fork at broken bow and what a lot of the rental places use. Im 6'1" and it was very comfortable for me. It was also a very stable boat and would have been fine fishing from. In the still water section it didn't track great but was ok. I couldn't help with the surf part of your question.
