Default Wtb fish cat or fat cat

I am interested in a used Cat4 or Fat Cat , I am about 215 lb and told the fish Cat 4 will be ok ? PM and post if you have something I might be interested in.
I do not want a classic acc. A 1 man outcast pontoon may not be out of the question pending the price

Thanks

I've fished from both approx.4 yrs ago. From my weak memory both were good. The biggest differences were the Fat Cat you were sitting above the water with storage behind the seat.

Hi Jimmie, and you too eastfly

I saw this thread yesterday and wasn't sure if you were looking for one for sale or just wanting information about them. I have 2 Out Cast Fish Cat boats. The small one is called the Cougar, it has been replaced by this model; Panther These are great and sturdy boats for floating a river or creek but the person riding the raft is sitting right at the water level although not in the waterline. I like the Cougar, it has 4 air tubes instead of 2 and is very stable in even heavy water conditions. They come with storage bags and a gear deck behind the rider.

If you can afford it and you want to be able to take an extended float, the Fish Cat 13' is the ticket. I removed the front seat and rail and added extra gear deck so that I can carry enough gear to cover a 5 - 6 day float with 2 one man boats along. You can anchor these on still water and cast pretty well because they sit high. I don't use it often but when I do I'm glad for the extra size of the 13. FishCat 13

Hope that's helpful,

Ard

Hi Ard & Jim,

Thanks for posting , These are float tubes , I was looking at getting one for ponds local to me and up in Maine ( some are hike in) , I had a deal on a fish cat 13 a while back but it fell thru. Since than I have been reading here and talked to a few guys and have been advised a tube is my better option. I like the idea of a toon for the rivers but I am often alone and than there is the issue of getting back to the truck. I think I read an old thread here and it came down to 2 different tools for 2 different jobs. I missed a Steelheader I used on craigslist for $350.00 ! I still look for both toon or tubes , if it is a good deal. I have been strongly advised to stay away from the Classic Acc. stuff and have not found a bad thing about Outcast or Dave Scadden (NFO).
The Toons are not to popular in the East for whatever reason, so finding a used one is not easy.

I weight about 215 , if anyone has an opinion on if I should go with the bigger (Fat cat) over the Fish Cat , that would help? or the foam seat vs. inflatable seat ?

Thanks
East

You want a Fish Cat 4 Deluxe, Super Fat Cat or Prowler. Thes have inflatable seats and are much nicer to fish out of for long periods of time. I'll have to look in my garage, as I may have an extra Fish Cat 4 deluxe out there.
