    u-boat or pontoon boat or inflatable kayak? for atv transport

    Looking at options for the smaller lakes, thinking of a $100 kids inflatable but maybe something more substantial is better
    Rigid kayak would be too much for the trails so??

    Check out Germany. They may have some surplus Nazi U- boat’s available!

    For small lakes go with a u-boat. For bigger water or rivers go with a pontoon.

    U boats are easier to get into.
    Small lakes tend to have no shoreline! so getting in can be hard.
    Plus, you can pack down a float tube quite small.
    And yes, on craigslist, you can find great deals all the time.

    I want a U boat!

    Seriously, I've had so much fun with my Intex kayaks that I've ordered a Sea Eagle 420 whitewater kayak. They work for everything as long as you don't stab holes in them while fishing.

    True, but i have seen my fair share of folks in kayaks take a bath also.
    Then your day trip is over til you find some dry clothes.
    Belly boats still have there purposes, imo.

    You could get one of the large 4-6 person inflatable with floor boards.
    They are pretty stable.
    You can get a motor mount and you could have a nice little fun device for lakes.
    You have to spend at least 3-4 hundred.

    I like the seat position of something like the Fishcat , higher compared to a round tube
    Found a frameless pontoon boat is made, more compact and good high position too, maybe better rowability? .

    I have the 8' punt and the 14 ' aluminum, so that end is covered

    Whatever you decided, skip the kayak.
    You want your hands free to fish.

    I love my pontoon boat for drifting rivers but prefer a belly/u-boat for more control my fly in still water.
