I have been enjoying a Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 sit in type kayak for 14 years. I love the kayak and I've used it for fishing but due to the hull shape the flush mount rod holders I installed had to be placed too far behind me. With a pair of bad shoulders it's uncomfortable to reach behind me that far. And there's not much room for my size 12 feet in the Pungos sit in type hull. I have always wondered what a sit on top kayak designed for fishing would be like but was hesitant to spend a lot on something I wasn't sure I would like. When I stopped at my local Tractor Supply store for dog food and saw a Tamarack out front priced at $299 I grabbed it. I figured this way I could try a sit on top and if I liked it then I'd sell it and shop for a higher quality one. We live on a tidal creek and I've had this out about 10 times so far and each time I ask myself why would I want anything more? The Tamarack is stable and tracks pretty well. The Pungo may be a little quicker but the Tamarack isn't bad at all. I don't take a lot of gear with me, two rods and a few lures, a PFD, a few cold adult beverages and a jacket and I'm good to go. I don't need rails for accessories or a fish finder. An empty Folger's coffee container fits nicely in the round hatch to serve as a dry box. The seat isn't anything more than a thin pad but the backrest is helpful. Sitting on a floating throw cushion helps make up for the inadequate seat pad and is comfortable enough. I tried using an Ozark Trail stadium seat that I've seen people say is a nice mod but IMHO it was horrible. Apparently Cascade Mountain has a stadium seat that may work and actually be comfortable. I'll never take this on a long journey, I just head out for several hours at a time. It's so peaceful and soothing to the soul to be in a kayak. And I have been catching more fish from the Tamarack than my bay boat : )

So, I have one toe in the Angler Kayak water. Based on advice, I tried out a non-angler sit in kayak on the local lake that I fish from the bank. While doing so, I picked off lots of lures and terminal tackle from the trees/ bushes around the lake that I and other bass fisherman had deposited there over the spring. This experience also got me out into the lake where I observed other bass strongholds that I could not reach from the shore. Next Step: Started looking at starter angler kayaks. Again, on advice, I looked at the Tamarack 10 ft kayak. Can be customized easily by a DIYer like myself to my needs. Thinking about doing this as a trial and then move up to a better level angler kayak as I am an AVID bass fisherman...

First time fishing kayak. Cheap and light weight. Holds all my fishing poles and some gear. Would like to have better dry storage. I think this kayak could use a better seat as my seat back broke after two uses. It broke at the hook, and it still works, but more comfort would be nice. There are many mods you can do on this boat. Much needed for a fisherman.

I am in my 60's and have been looking for a kayak that I felt comfortable in. We bought and tried 2 other kayaks before this one. The first one was an 8' lifetime kayak, and even though it was stable, I was unable to keep up with other kayaks and was basically always behind. Too short for my weight. Then we purchased a 10 foot Sundolphin Journey SS sit on top. I liked the idea of adjustable foot rests-they weren't all that great and definitely have to wear water shoes for comfort-so no longer a priority on my wish list. Both my husband and I were uncomfortable in this kayak. It felt like it would tip over easily if you adjusted your weight too much, and the tracking was horrible. We used it once or twice and decided it had to go. Then, I purchased the Tamerack, and what an incredible kayak! It is easy to get in and out of. The seat is extremely comfortable. I did buy a seat pad for added comfort. The tracking is phenomenal and great stability. I can easily keep up with the kayaks and I don't really worry about tipping over. We used it at Table Rock Lake in Missouri and the boat wakes were no problems for this kayak-went over them with ease. This is a fishing kayak so my husband has equipped it for fishing. There are hooks and fishing pole holders, etc. Water does seep into the storage wells, but not sure if I didn't have the lids latched securely, or not. The paddle that came with the boat work well.

As I stated in the beginning, I am in my 60's and still want to do fun things. My weight is around 175 lbs and I have no issues with this kayak. Third time is definitely a charm!
