  How far out in the ocean?

Your profile lists ocean/sea for paddling environments. That is more about the paddler than the boat. A boat needs to suited for the water it will be on, more than the paddler that is on/in it. So beginner, paddler or boat, and well offshore on the ocean are terms that should not go together.

The boat you list here is a SOT if I have the right one. Limits the issues and obviously better suited for fishing. It is more exposed paddling for your body though - need to think some good wind blocking layers even in Florida before long.

What are your thoughts on that, and where are you in Florida? It is likely that folks on this board can point you at a place with more specialized knowledge about kayak fishing on the ocean than the kids at Dick's.
