Jackson Kayak pro-staffer here and I can highly recommend the Cuda 12 for your situation.
Coosachip got it right when he mentioned it first. The '12 came out of the angler group that wanted a boat that could go off-shore on occasion and maybe be used on rivers to go upstream easier than you could in a Coosa. But for what you're talking about, the Cuda 12 would be darn near perfect; A boat he can fish out of (and stand if he wants) and yet long enough, and fast enough, to keep up with you should he want to accompany you on a jaunt around the lake.
The Cuda 12 is going to be the next addition to my personal fleet this spring.
