The idea that it's good to be "enclosed and warm" is a kayaker's idea, not a fishermen's idea. If you can dress warm enough to fish out of an open boat, the idea that you must be enclosed in a cockpit just to be comfortable seems pretty odd, especially when considering how much more difficult it is to have easy access to your gear, etc. To me, it makes more sense to choose a boat that's better suited for fishing than to choose one that helps protect you from the weather.
