Question Good Fishing Kayak for Long Island Waters?

What kayaks would you recommend for fishing in Long Island, Jamaica Bay, etc. I weigh 240 lbs and am 6'3", so I'm guessing it would have to be a bigger sized kayak... Thanks.

I'm the same size as you and have an Ocean Kayak Prowler 15. Wish it had just a tad more leg room, but other than that it fits me very well. Tracks great (get the rudder option), and is comfortable to fish from. There are lots of great options out there, though. Shop around and try out as many as you can before you buy.

My Prowler 15 is the 2007 model I think. It doesn't have the big center hatch that the Trident does, and I think the scupper holes are different, but other than that it's pretty much the same boat from what I can tell. They may have put more leg room in the Trident, don't know for sure, as I've never actually sat in one.
