Has anyone used this canoe and would it be good for lake fishing? If not can y'all recommend some other canoes around 500? I know I should probably buy used and would like too but don't really know where or how

I bought the 146xt about 5 years ago for around 500$ as it was a floor model at LL bean. It's a great canoe, plenty of room for 2 people and a bunch of rods and gear. Light enough that I can load and unload it on my cars cross bars by myself. 

I made a trolling motor mount and put a 50lb minnkota on it and it zips around my local reservoirs and lakes. I also attached a transducer to the motor and mounted a depth finder. There's a lot you can do to modify it to how you like. You can't go wrong

Thanks for the reply, how's the durability and are the seats comfy?

Durability is good. The bottom of the front of the canoe is showing some wear from running/pulling ashore, but a good bit of it is from me being careless. The seats aren't the most comfortable after all day, so I usually bring a towel folded over to sit on. I'm getting some aluminum stock to create brackets to mount some bass boat seats so that should help with long days.
