That might be the most expensive solution if I need a guide each time to fish.. lol
I'd like the trolling motor because there are channels with strong currents and I'd like to take it out to sea.. Not too far out but I'd like to move quickly when the weather gets bad.
I've ruled out perception right now.. doesn't fit my needs. I did look into the new Diablo kayaks.. those seem sweet. You're even able to stand up on them which comes in handy when you're sight seeing for fish. But those are $1500+...
Another brand I looked into was.. Freedom Hawk Pathfinder... again..awesome kayak... the back half splits out for extra stability when you need to stand up. Has the attachment for a motor from the vendor, just like I'm looking for. But the price kills it for me... Looks like it also has a pretty deep bow... which should make it perform better when the waters choppy.
For what I'm looking for I keep coming back to the Lifetime sports fisher... still considering the thrust power for the motor. Endura 40 or 50..
