Author Topic: belly boat wanted
G.A.

hey im looking to buy a belly boat or pontune..probably preffer a belly boat for backpacking being lighter/smaller. i need the whole deal...waders and so on. probably just buy new waders cause im a bit taller than the average person.
ive never had one so any info on what to look for with a budget of about $250-$300 range for the boat
thx

but a u-boat or pontoon rather than an actual belly boat. b'boats are a pain to get in and out of. fishcats ;ike the one that was recently sold on here would fit withing the $300 budget for the boat.
for boots, i'd suggest get some breathables. they are much more comfortable than neoprenes (i have a pair of neoprenes for real cold water but even then breathables are fine with adequate clothing. have fun. flot tubes are way more comfortable than the old car toppers!

thx for the responses guy..i bought one today. got the fish cat4. same as in the link but not the infaltable seat. just the foam pad, good enough for almost 80 bucks less, my but aint worth that much. i also grabbed a pair of the trophy xl flppers and pump and 20 flies all for $344. now i just need the waiters and maybe booties for the flips, was told i could find some pants for about 80 bucks at wally world. shop i went to started at 400 and up for waiders...sorry, rip off what it is

Check Army and Navy, I know they sometimes have breathables for a decent price. And keep an eye on CL, I've seen a lot of stuff on there lately...
