Hey everyone, I am looking to get my first kayak for fishing and duck hunting purposes. I am looking currently at the Ascend H12 which is a 12" open cockpit sit-in with a elevated seat. I like the idea of a sit-in for the hunting side of things as I could carry more gear in it. Also is there a big difference between a 10' and a 12' kayak? The 10' is $100 cheaper but if its less stable or maneuverable/tracks worse i'd rather pay the extra $100. Any ideas or input would be greatly appreciated. Would mostly be used rivers like the Willamette and Tualatin and maybe if it get comfortable enough in it some other smaller tributary's of the Willamette. Also the Columbia. Will be using it on lakes and reservoirs also. I will be making some modifications eventually like maybe a fish finder and a removable rod holder in front as well as flood lights.
