Best size 12' or 14' Stealth
I'm 5'9" and weigh about 220 pounds, also I would like to bring my son, he is about 65 pounds. With the type of fishing I do (bass mainly) I think the 12' would serve my purpose better, but is it big enough for me and for me and my son.

ether one will work expecilly the the gator hatch seat.
You will be fine in a 12' however you will have A LOT more room in the 14' giving him the option to sit on gator hatch or back in the tankwell. If you are not concerned with the price difference I would go 14' it's worth it.
As you can see, this is my little one on the 12' and she loves it, but I also have the 14' and it has been much better giving her the ability to crawl around wherever she likes.

The weight capacity on the Stealth 12 is 450 lbs. With you, your son, and lets say 30 lbs of gear - you would still be over 100 lbs below capacity. The 14 will be more comfortable for the 2 of you because of the additional room and capacity, but the 12 will definitely do the track. And as a kayak fisherman who mainly targets bass (on all types of waters) I would recommend the 12 for the best all around boat.
The Stealth 12 is a one-person kayak. The max load weight is 450 lbs. Thanks
