I kayak, but I do not fish and I know very little about fishing. If you have questions about the kayaking part I may be able to help.

Ahh well the only way id be able to transport my kayak would be a cadillac deville. I was thinking of buying one of those racks that attach to the top of the car and attaching a kayak rack to that.
How do you transport yours?
And also I was wondering if I had to worry about the kayak being longer than my car.

I've kinda been dreaming of this for a few years and I think I'm gonna get one within the next few months.

We have a Ford Explorer SUV that has a roof rack, and we bought something called a Big Stack from Yakima that attaches to the cross bars on the roof rack. It's basically a kit with 2 arms that fold down when you aren't using them. There are hooks on top of the arms where the straps go, and you can carry 2 kayaks with them. There are also kayak "cradles" that attach to the roof rack, that probably let you avoid scratching the heck out of your roof unlike the Big Stack.

If we had a roof rack, we could carry the kayaks on our Camry. I don't see why you wouldn't be able to carry one on the Caddy. The only thing stopping us is that those roof racks (at least the Yakima and Thule brands) are VERY expensive, like $500-600 I think.
