Had a good day with the skinny German yesterday so I went back with Alister. We got a few more nice fish. Geesh, Ive caught more good bass in the last two weeks off my little kick boat than I ever got before.

ANywhere between R1500 and 3,5k (Float tubes).

These are better especially in winter but are more prone to be affected by wind.

The added height advantage goes a long way too - you can see further you have more freedom of movement and are less likely to swallow water if the waves get big ;)

Float tubes are more compact and easier to transport.

Personally for the big fellas a pontoon boat is the way to go.

Not that it is likely to happen - but magine your float tube were suddenly for some reason to deflate could you swim with waders, tackle, and a tube around your armpits - I belive lifeJackets should be a must on Float tubes.

Another thing - most rivers and dams flowing east have Crocs - I would rather be above the water than in it....

You can also have this modified to accomodate a trolling motor for the oldage..... is it worth it???

You can pick up a small secondhand fiberglass dingy for about the same price - but it just ain't the same
My humble 2 c

I call these type of pontoons, hybrids, its a mixture of a pontoon and a float tube...
These are very nice, but the only problem i have with them is there is no where to put your feet when using a trolling motor...but im sure a plan can be made for that...
R3900 is quite a good price.
I agree with Ryan, dingy's and inflatables is just not the same...im converting my pontoon back to its original way it was, will post some pics when im finished with it...

Good points there, I agree there are some pro's and cons but I think for the price this is a the better option...

Ryan,

Pontoon, V-Boat, Floattube..... anything without a solid floor, will not see me in it in Croc waters.... You know the size that thos buggers get in the Okavango and Zambia.....

But hell yes, my camo doesnt disguise me from the cold unfortunately... I like this pontoon, but I think if I add 5K to it, I can get a decent enough "boat"

Hey guys, this is probably gonna sound biased. But what is the advantage of using a pontoon boat or float tube over using a plastic stable kayak?

Agree about the manouverability - but there is noway that a Monohull is more stable than a Double.
What does a kayak price?
