by Fishsticker Great Kayak and Fishing Platform!
If you want to fish from a Kayak, the Freedom Hawk is the one.
My wife and I both own the Freedom Hawk 12 and love them. We bought the 12's because they are a bit lighter weight and easier for my wife to handle when loading and unloading.
With the in-line outriggers deployed, this a very stable stand-up fishing platform. When standing, you can fish 360 degrees around the boat, you have great visibility for spotting fish and structure, and it is very stable. Standing makes fly casting so much easier.(Oh...and you can still fish sitting down like other kayaks if you choose.) With the outriggers in the normal position, the boats paddle very well and is still pretty stable.
Plenty of space and storage for your gear. Flush mount rod holders are nice. The only minor issue I encountered is that the push pole storage is tricky to access once the seat is installed. I find that I paddle standing up a great deal, so rigged up a paddle holder on the casting bar to hold my paddle for easy access while standing.
If you want to fish from a Kayak...get the Freedom Hawk. Awesome boat!
