I've settled on an Old Town PDL kayak for coastal lake fishing, but I'm not sure which model to purchase, either the 10.6 ft or the 12 ft model. I run about 190 lbs on a good day, and I have a low enter of gravity, so I don't think stability is an issue. Based on what I've figured out from the specs, the only real difference is the storage advantage another 18 inches provides. Obviously, the weight will be greater on the 12 footer, but in general, I don't think that will be a problem for me.
What other advantages would either model offer, that I'm not seeing? Hopefully, some of you kayak experts have to offer insights I'm missing.
