    For anyone considering getting a kayak specifically for fishing, this is a great boat. I won a Tarpon 120 last year, and although it doesn't compare to a sea kayak for speed and general paddling, it's unbeatable if you ever want to go out fishing (I would expect this 160 to be much faster than my 120 though!). The side rails can be outfitted with rod holders, GPS etc. and there's plenty of room for gear. I've even outfitted mine with a downrigger in the rear 'tankwell'. It won't replace your 'conventional' sea kayak for trips etc., but in the same way, your sea kayak is a nightmare to try to fish from compared to one of these! I don't know the seller and have no affiliation - just thought I'd post my own experiences!

    I can see this is an old post but have you had any luck selling that tarpon?
