my first kayak was a Ascend FS10…I rigged it up pretty good with FF and rod holders etc…it's a great kayak…it tracks as straight as any other, paddles well and is light so it moves through the water pretty quick too…I could keep up with my buddy in a Hobie Rev13 with a normal cadence peddle…being a sit in, it has some advantages for a smaller kayak…the seat is exceptionally comfortable…I've done 6-7 hr journeys and had no issues…I've used it for Tourneys and general outings and never felt like I was behind anyone else….I used that kayak for 2 years and am now in a Hobie…mostly because of the water I fish…plenty of current so hands free was a better idea….I still have the Ascend and plan to keep it…great kayak to introduce people to the sport….it's relatively stable…not stand worthy but stable….Best of luck and it's awesome to hear you are getting two kayaks to get out there with your son….beats video games anyway..Welcome to the site too….always great advice here and plenty of information….

That was my budget when I entered into the kayak fishing world and went with a barley used kayak off craigslist. There are some great deals out there for that budget.

Demo all you can. For 500 bucks you can get into a Lifetime Tamarack or Emotion Stealth11. There are others but for pond fishing I just love the Stealth. Also, easy to load or unload.

Hi Welcome to the wonderful world of Kayak Fishing!!! I have the Ascend FS12T. I've had it for a year now and for the price you really can't beat it. It tracks very well and I can stand up and fish out of it with no problems. I am no where near a powerlifter and I can easily load it on the roof of my Tahoe. It is also very easy to add upgrades to if you wanted to go that route. The one and only drawback that I have found is that the front rod holder is placed a little to far forward. Overall I think it would be a great purchase. The main thing is just hurry up and buy one and get on the water and fish. :fishing:

:welcome:
Ive fished out of the perception pescador12 a few times and its a nice light kayak (as long as you arent planning on standing and fishing). Easy to toss into a pond or stream, also plenty stable and fast for a 12ft boat.
The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.
