Inflatable Pontoon Boat

Recommended Posts

I have used a pontoon like that on the White and Norfork with several units running.  Its a blast.  Never needed a trolling motor, they row pretty easy.  Till the wind picks up strong.

If you don’t have them already pick up some swim fins, the wind is going spin you.

Wind & slack water are your enemies in one of those, but they provide a nice comfy ride in good current. There a bit wide for the Current, but fine on the 11pt, NFoW, Taney. Set up time is a chore, so bring it fully assembled, but with tubes deflated a bit. Keep it IN the water with tubes inflated in the summer time, deflate in camp...Bring the pump and patch kit.

I prefer just to keep things simple... mainly using the boat to get from place to place.

In fact, I hardly fish out of the boat itself at all - I beach it.

No need for a motor - I just row the boat.
