Newbie Request

He all. I'm very new to yak fishing, I dont own a boat yet but I am shopping now. Leaning toward OK 13'. My intentions are to hit up that paddle show in NH at the end of the month and hopefully demo some boats and hit a seminar or two. Truthfully, I'm ready for some hands on. Is there anyone who wants to head, I'd like to tag along and maybe learn a thing or two, once I get a boat and gear of course, which will be soon. Just so you know I have been in kayak and have fished. Any newbies are welcome to reply, I'm just looking for some company out there. Where are some good, safe places to start my first few times. I live in Mass.

A little more detail would be helpful

Salt, fresh, or both
Types of water (still, rivers, surf, open)
Age, weight, strength
Fly, spin, conventional
Artificials, bait, live, fly
Budget

Thank should get us started.

Sam, I was also thinking about investing in an entry level yak. W=I'm in western mass and stopped in at Dicks and told the guy...local lakes and ponds as well as the very slow moving sections of the housatonic river. He was showing me a few models when I mentioned that I might also used in in some of the saltwater ponds when I'm at the cape. The guy told me that these are freshwater kayaks and cant be used in saltwater. He couldnt really explain why but insisted that these kayaks would fall apart if used in saltwater.

Is there such a thing as plastic only made for freshwater?

If the kayaks had any cheap metal holding in the seats or thwarts then it could be a fresh water only thing. Otherwise the guy probably wants to sell you something more expensive.
