Tons of people

SOT kayaks are more popular, but there's a huge number of people off the Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf coasts who use sea kayaks both SOT and SinK.
All you need is a rod holder, some tackle, and self-rescue skills.
A very good website that discusses kayak fishing is www.kayakfishingstuff.com. It's one of the first. I don't know if he's on it any more, but Jim Sammons used to participate regularly there and there's not many people who know more about fishing from sea kayaks than Jim Sammons. JonS runs a good site. He's knowledgeable enough that manufacturers turn to him for design advice on new kayaks designed for fishing. They'll get you started right. Go and register, then spend some time lurking and reading what's come before. A huge wealth of free information.
