Why? You don't even fish anymore do you???

Well, you ripped off the scab with that comment man. :D It has been a while. Drag your butt up I-49 sometime and I'll fill you in, but life is good.

I didn't mean to disturb a festering wound. I might be spending some time up there in August. I'll give you a shout if I do.

That looks like it would be worth checking out for 4 hundo  

Yeah no kidding. I think I'm going to check that out too. Been thinking of getting a real fishing kayak eventually, but with this deal, I might get it sooner than I thought. The 9.5' Perception Swifty I have, that I modified for fishing purposes has served me well so far, but it's a little cramped when I bring all the stuff I do, when I go fishing. Eventually it just gets annoying spending as much time as I do, fishing around for stuff I need, that I can only cram in somewhere around the seat. That, and a full day on the water fishing, gets kind of tiring on the back and legs with how small it is.

Spend the extra $150 and get the Pescador at Academy. It is a true rotomolded boat with a proven hull. Stored properly and treated half decently that boat will last 10 years or more (I've got a version of that boat that's 13 years old). Only $15 bucks extra a year to have a sure thing instead of a $400 roll of the dice.

I'm heading out there after work to take a look at some of these. I do see a lot of these on the water and people seem to really like them.

Just seen this post and from your original post it looks like you are looking for something that has unbelievably stability, can be loaded and unloaded without breaking your back, and won't break the bank.  I have a kayak fishing shop down on Indian Point and Table Rock Lake called Ozarks Extreme Outdoors.  We carry different brands and we do carry yaks that have raised seating, under 80#s, great stability, and under $1,000 dollars.  Check out the Diablo Amigo (LENGTH: 12'8" WIDTH: 37.5" WEIGHT: 75lbs CAPACITY: 500lbs) and the Feelfree Lure 10 ( LENGTH: 10' WIDTH: 36" WEIGHT : 69lbs CAPACITY: 375 lbs).  Both are specifically designed as a standup platform and are priced at $999. We are a local dealer for both these brands as well as for Malibu Kayaks, Emotion Kayaks, and Vibe Kayaks with prices that range for a Sit on Top Fishing kayak from $499 and up.      

But as far as advise goes, don't ever take anybodies word on what kayak will be right for you, just like purchasing a vehicle test drive, kick the tires, and demo multiple kayaks. We offer demos on all brands that we carry at anytime during our regular business hours and would be happy to help answer any questions. You should look at all your options and then decide what fits you and your pocketbook best.   

We also have a sale going on right now at 5% off all new kayaks and 10% off all accessories, gear, and tackle, just saying.

If you've not already purchased one I'd also make the suggestion to "test drive" a couple. I know the place in Ozark off highway 65 will let you try out their boats. They sell the Native Ultimates too. Those are sweet!

I am late to the party ,but have you checked out the link below?  I am buying one of these next year for my son and I....might get one for the wife as well.  They look a bit heavy, but are very stable and can handle a small motor and trolling motor if needed.  I think there a couple dealers in/near Springfield if yo haven't already bought.
