I’m interested in a saltwater fishing drive system kayak for NY’s Long Island East End, Long Island Sound and Peconics Bays. I like the pelican catch 130 hydryve kayak but I don’t see a lot of “ocean” going usage/videos. Also considering the perception pescador pilot 12 but I’d prefer the Pelican. Hobie’s are not in my budget so no go there.
I don’t plan to fish the open ocean off Montauk but I’d like to be able to be within sight of land anywhere throughout the Long Island Sound, Peconics and relevant Bays (Sag Harbor, Three Mile Harbor, Shelter Island, etc.). Don’t plan any ocean south shore surf launches.
Any thoughts, experiences and advise for a modest saltwater fishing yak with some kind of drive system?
