Kayak anglers looking for a fishing kayak designed from the ground up to so solve all their needs should take a hard look at the Wilderness Systems "A.T.A.K" or Advanced Tactical Angling Kayak. Wilderness Systems took all the best features from their "Thresher" and "Ride MAX" series kayaks into a low profile fast paddling kayak with a large open fishing cockpit. The A.T.A.K strikes that hard to find balance between speed and standing stability that all kayak fishermen have longed for.
To Tandem or Not to Tandem...that is the question. A Pro/Con comparison between Tandem and Single Kayaks article. The Wilderness Systems Pamlico 145T Tandem Kayak with Solo/Tandem Conversion is a compromise.
