Default First Kayak Help

I am looking to buy my first kayak ever. I have never been on one in my life and I want to be able to do a lot of fishing. I am looking for something sturdy as I am a bigger guy (about 220 pounds).

I have really been looking hard at the Ascend FS128T from Bass Pro Shops. The reviews are nix nix. Some are good and some are bad. But for the most part they seem to be good reviews. I have ready that the hatches leak a little. But a little silicone can fix that so that's not too big of a deal.

What are some thoughts on this kayak?

Are there other kayaks in the same price range that are comparable, or do I have to go over $1000 to find something close?

I have done a lot of research on the Ascend and I think it will be what I end up getting if something better does not come along. I have watched tons of YouTube videos and it seems to be a damn good kayak.

Any and all input is welcome here. Thank you in advance.
