I have decided to take up fishing from a kayak mostly in the Solent from the Gosport beaches. The Prowler 13 looks very good but I was not sure if a 15' kayak would be more suitable for the Solent. Please advise.

I have a Prowler 13 and I use it all over the place including the Solent the 15 will track a little better than the 13 and you have a bit more room, but don't forget the weigh a lot more and handling on your own may not be so good. hope this helps if not get back to me

The prowler for me wasnt the best choice, sure its very popular but its also heavy, has in my opinion too much space for clutter.

WHY anglers take 3-4 rods with them is beyond me...its more to get wet!

I have a Tarpon 120, now kitted as an Angler, 12 feet long, light enough to LIFT on car roof unaided, 2 holders, scotty, and I take just what I konw I'll use....

Some people take enough kit with them to have an angling jumble sale..
Hmmm maybe they are...didnt think of that
