I picked up a Pungo last month. For fishing purposes I was primarily interested in a stable plastic tub to get from point A to point B. Opted for the Pungo based on stuff I've read on the boards and the fact that it looked like I might fit in it. Also, a knowledgble co-worker bought two, just based on the hull design and what he had read. He was looking for recreational kayaks for he and his wife to explore Cape estuaries in. That kinda sold me.
