very true.... just get a sit on top (SOT) such as an ocean kayak, if you've rented one before, chances are it was an ocean kayak like a Ocean Kayak's "Mailbu II" model. you can add rod holders easily, a flush mount has the rod go into the hull, and a deck mount gives you greater flexibility on placement: see this page http://www.paddling.net/guidelines/showArticle.html?158

If you put a trolling motor on it, you have to register it.

There are kayaks made for big guys, but you are gonna pay dearly. The wider the kayak, the better support it will give. You need to look for something over 33" wide. Also, accessories will add up the price in a hurry. I think Flats1 has a Heritage Marquesa listed somewhere else with a hole in it (on top) that can easily be patched
3 things you NEED:
A good high back seat (trust me)
A good light weight paddle
A rudder

Call me and Ill give you the rest of a run down on Yaks. I have kayak fished for years.
Or google kayaks for big guys and you will find hours of reading on diffeent ones. If I had the money, I would have a Hobie

I know they are in Panama city beach but it may give you some ideas also like someone said Craig's list up here always has 5 or 6 a week.
