The kingfish is a great kayak. I have fished out of a lot of other kayaks and if you are going to fish and have fun this is the kayak for you. The price is just a bonus. The yak is lighter due to a thinner hull thickness, which you will not notice unless you are using it as a lounge chair in your backyard. It is easy to install additional rod holders, fishfinders etc. The forward hatch has more than enough room to put extra gear for you trip.There are a couple of things that need to be changed. The paddle cords are to tight and need to be replaced. The drain and the forward hatch cover are attached with a cord, there is a steel washer attached to each end of the cord that should be replaced with a SS washer to prevent a cover loss. It tracks well under normal paddle with only light tracking problems when you are trying to outrun a liquid twister. It is a little slower due to the textured bottom wich creates more water resistance than the smooth bottomed kayaks. Strong paddlers can keep up with them with out a problem. Stability is not a issue. I have went through some of the best surf, Texas has to offer without coming out of the yak. This not just a starter kayak. It will work for all types of fishing. I have caught bull reds at the jetties to red snapper off of Padre Island.
