I prefer fishing from my SOT, but I am compelled to carry a rod with me no matter what I'm paddling, and occasionaly fish from my Epic V10. Admittedly a bit extreme, but it can be done. I carry a micro spinning rod and a small case of lures between my legs. Since I always catch-and-release, boating a fish is not an issue. Fortunately I've never hooked anything really big - maybe a 7 or 8 pound red. Even that was an adventure. I also carry a handline (Cuban Yo-Yo)but have never hooked anything but small pan fish.
I guess the net of it for me is that I prefer fishing from a SOT, but paddling a sea/ski kayak.
