Default boat recommend

boat advice can anyone recommend a one man, easily portable, fishing boat. I am working mostly small ponds with no launch capability. Will have to walk it in up to 1/4 mi. Thanks for your help.

does it have to be a boat? sounds like perfect conditions for a V shaped float tube with shoulder straps, something in the way of the fish cat 4. nothing like fishing from an inflatable easy chair....

I was thinking the same thing...
Also, you would be surprised how far into a small pond you can wade. I have a few ponds close by that I can actually wade from a few different spots and cover the entire pond.

I have a Coleman Navigator. Mine is the two man model. The one man model is just a bit small if you carry any gear. It came as a kit with oars that break down into three pieces (perfect for a back pack) and a pump for about $30 plus shipping if I recall. And it weighs 11 pounds. Cheap, effective, and highly portable.

Default Re: boat recommend

It would help to know where you are located. Will you ever be using it on rivers etc.? What do you fish for? How big a pond?


One man boat or float tube; you'll have to make the decision on that question but I have a FishCat Cougar and for oaring around a small lake it works fine. It really shines when you do a river or creek float trip due to the capability of carrying camp gear with you, or food, or beer, or whatever. Any of the 8' Catarafts would serve your needs.
