Frog Boats
 
I am trying to decide between a kayak or pontoon. Right now I have it narrowed down to a Native Ultimate 12 or Hobie Float Cat 75 Expedition. I like features of both, but I would like to be able to stand and that is in the Ultimate 12's favor, but I could sit up higher on the Hobie. I am not looking for large water capabilities. Will be using on rivers and small no-wake type lakes and ponds.

During my research I ran across this alternative and was wondering if anyone is familiar with this or has any comments (GoFroggin). There is actually a dealer here in the D/FW area and it looks like it my be a cross between the yak and pontoon with some of the best features of both. I would appreciate other's thoughts on this.

1500 for it, i think I will stick with my pontoon. Can't stand up, but I do not find the need for it. If I were you I would go to the dealer and see if they will let you demo it first. I think there site said something about "click here to schedule you demo"

Hi txbevo,

I looked at all of the boats that you mentioned. I didn't see any of them that would be good for a river unless the river was very slow. You have some good choices for lakes.

The Yak with the paddle setup looked interesting. It seems like the lady doing the paddling was raising her legs back close to her chest. I would want to try it before I bought one.

Here's what I fish out of.

Emotion Kayaks Mojo Angler

Love it. Easy to cartop and you can stand in it, although I haven't much. You can store lots of gear inside and it is self bailing so you stay pretty dry too.

Re: Frog Boats
 
Thanks for the post. Now I have another option to consider. I like the looks of the Mojo Angler as well. Just when you think you have something narrowed down there is always another option.

Check out the Grand Slam by Emotion as well. Its a 14 footer that is popular. The Heritage Redfish series is a very popular angling kayak too.
