Thanks for asking. I like the Native kayaks too, especially for fresh and skinny water fisheries.
The short answer is to "try before yoy buy" when you can. Local and regional dealer "demo days" are a good place to start. There are well over 100 fishing kayaks out there and our guides regularly recommend about a dozen of those models based on price, fishability, seaworthiness, quality of construction and ongoing feedback from anglers who fish them. Most popular models are available on the pre-owned market too. The kayak also has to fit the fishery and the angler.
