Default new to kayaks a few questions

So I have a float tube and pontoon boat, but want to get into kayaks. How is it fishing in one compared to a tube or pontoon. Also I am 6'2 260 with a size 15 foot will a sit in boat fit my big feet? And has anyone ever used the field and stream 12 ft camo boat not sure of the model number? Any thoughts on the removeable storage pod? Thanks!

At your size I would suggest looking into Malibu SOT's.It's likely you'll have space problems with a SIS and size 15 feet.Maybe some of the Rec's will be OK but touring type boats are meant to fit just so.

I am your size and I kayak on Malibu X-factor sit-on-top kayak. Sit-in is hard to fit in for tall paddlers. It is a stable kayak with enough storage space. Comes with fishing rod holders too. I believe this kayak can be termed as the best kayak for beginners too because it is easier to learn on this kayak.
