After drilling holes in them to put in the pole holders, they are not sealed.
Holes above the water line are not a problem.
There is no dry storage in a kayak.
Take it for a couple of short paddles before you start trying to fish from it and see how much water accumulates.
Because you're a new paddler, you don't know anything. Remember that before you set out on your first paddle. Keep it short, keep it close to shore, don't do it in cold water, etc. Use your head and always wear a PFD. Get one that is comfortable and that you will wear, then keep it on from shore to shore.
Be safe. Have fun.
