Looking to buy a sturdy kayak that can be used for bay fishing, salmon fishing, crabbing, etc. Located in Portland. Any places for a beginner to look?

Hope you weren't thinking that I was saying that BiMart kayak was "best" because it is very likely not. Just looked like he might be looking for a less expensive option. It did look like the rudder and steering control were there and decently equipped.rogerdodger said:I can't find any info online about that BiMart "Cascade Pro" kayak, so no comment. I assume it had a rudder and steering control?
I would say that if the plan is to use the kayak for "bay fishing, salmon fishing, crabbing, etc.", then "Best" and "Safest" are sort of the same thing.
