I've got an Ocean Kayak Scupper Pro TW. It's a sit-on top, so I only use it from May to Sept. I like the sit on top b/c I am higher on the water for easier casting. It's not quite as stable as the Pungo, but WAY easier to paddle. It's still really stable, I just wouldn't stand in it. Speed and stability are always a trade-off. I mounted a rod holder between my feet, and the storage is huge. I have an open well on the back that'll easily hold a good sized cooler (for fish fillets), and the bow has dry storage that holds:
a spare paddle, a spinning rod in case it gets windy, my tackle bag, a cooler with lunch and water, waders, wading boots and a wind breaker...with plenty of room to spare.
It's a wet ride, but all kayaks are. The extra speed makes a huge difference when you see fish breaking, or you are on the way home from a long day.
