Hi I would rate the Ocean Kayaks one of the best, I have a 13 foot Prowler it is very stable and good in rough weather. To be honest I would not go smaller than 12 foot and if you have the money the longer the kayak the faster it will go, but it is also heavier so take that in mind.
With the cost of the kayak you will need a paddle of course, but don't forget a buoyancy aid, wetsuits and if you want to go out in the colder months a drysuit will be necessary along with warm footwear. The next thing will be anchor, flares and VHF radio mobile phones are OK, but low down in/on the water you may not get a signal.
This fishing site is very good so I'm not knocking it,(as I get loads of advice on my beachfishing here) but Anglers Afloat is designated to kayak fishing and will have loads of people in your area to show/give guidance to you if you need it.

I did mention beach fishing, as I don't like going out in anything higher than force 4 as I find it uncomfortable and more so in the colder months, kayak fishing is great and you get the added bonus of keeping you fit as well with all the paddling, if you follow all the safety advice you won't go far wrong, but if you have never paddled before, get someone to go with you on a nice day or on a river before going it alone.
