If you want to shoot from a kayak, you probably want to stick with the fatter SOTs for the stability, plus they will easily handle the weight you are giving them.
The angler versions are probably going to have the type of outfitting you want plus most of them come in a non-angler version so you can add what you need. These poly SOTs are usually very durable so wouldn't worry about damaging but they are going to be heavy.
Native Watercraft and Wilderness Systems are going to have the most choices for these types of kayaks.
I know some paddlers who like the pedal drives for hunting and fishing. Gives them the ability to keep hands free while moving the kayak. Downside is they are better for deeper water so they don't get stuck in plants or mud. From what you are saying might not be the best option.

The print version of Canoe and Kayaks Boat Book magazine just came out which is good if you want to see lots of kayaks and some specs. Good bathroom reading.
