you sound like you made your choice...good luck...as a final word I will point out that not only do I stand up and fish but it requires no balance and I can easily turn 360 degrees without worry and I have a stand up bar for times that I need it...to remove the act of balacing allows for free flowing cast...

Thanks for the replies everyone. I got the wavewalk 14 and it is a joy to fish out of. I can easily stand in it, but the fishing while sitting is so much better that a regular yak, that I almost find that a stronger point. It is slow with a headwind due to being higher off the water. Also slow due to me using my short yak paddle that I have not replaced yet.
Here is my outback with the easily raisable pontoons You can easily google the intstructions. As you can see, you can stand in bigger water than you would normally want for sight fishing. When it's really flat it's very easy.
You will see a rod in my hand . Much as I like tai-chi, I find a rod is better for stripers.
Late to this post but the Nucanoe Frontier 12 is a very stable casting platform.
I can stand comfortably , turn around and access the front hatch. With the swivel seat I can turn around and fish off the stern.
BlueYak, glad to hear you bought the Wavewalk. I got one last spring and became a dealer in NC last fall. It is really an amazing craft. I won't add much to it's praises as most have been said in this thread. I would suggest that you get the 9' paddle as it will make a big difference. I find it so stable that I can easily throw a cast net and I learned to throw it after I got the W. Anyone looking for a stable standup kayak should look at the Wavewalk before buying any other brand.
I still use the yak, although I also have a 16ft boat now. I bought a second sensor for my gps/sounder and have it on the yak.
That gps has caused me to realize how slow the yak really is. No wind and paddle moderate for 3mph. With wind against you it's a battle. I tend to use it in situations where I can run with the tide till low and go back on incoming tide.
