I'm considering this kayak for fishing smaller lakes(250 acres or less). I weigh about 235, it's rated for 325 lbs, and I take very little gear with me. Is this a good choice as far as tracking, stability? I like the light weight, and that it will fit in my van. The reviews I've read have been very good. Thanks.

I haven't paddled one myself, but it is among the kayak models that I call "pedigreed" for that kind of fishing. I weigh more than you, and have paddled 10' SOT kayaks, even slightly shorter ones, and it worked OK. A lot of people have used that model for that purpose and liked it.

I really don't.|

My experience is that SOTs are generally under-rated for the weight they can carry. If you're under - and well under - the claimed capacity, I have confidence that you'll be OK.
