I bought the Trident 13 for its stability and storage capacity. There is no question in my mind that this SOT design is the way to go for kayak fishing. The stability is excellent; I've fished this kayak on big rivers like the Bighorn and run it through fast water and standing waves with great confidence. It is also fine for fishing "side saddle" and is virtually flip proof on salt water in strong seas. Its hull design makes for excellent tracking on still water.
While it does have excellent storage capacity, the center trunk is rather long and wide and leaves only tight leg room on either side. The pre-tapped holes and gear sets on the trunk lid are not user friendly, for example for receiving Scotti rod holders, etc., or for screwing in other accessories. Fully rigged, the boat weighs in well over 60#, which makes loading and unloading from the vehicle a challenge.
On the whole a fine boat, with a few design improvements it would be a great boat.
