When most people think of a bass boat they think of a boat with a huge outboard motor that goes about 200 miles per hour and is more brightly colored than the tamest stock car. While these bass boats are extremely popular and effective for chases bass, they have one distinct drawback. They can cost upwards of twenty thousand dollars.
For those of you with a little “slower paced" attitude and an “every mans" budget, you may want to consider inflatable bass boats. These boats cost a fraction of what traditional bass boats cost, and can be just as effective for bass fishing. This is especially true for those of you who fish smaller lakes or tend to travel a lot like RV enthusiasts.
Inflatable bass boats come in many different styles as well. From inflatable canoes and kayaks to inflatable pontoon boats both large and small, when it comes to inflatable bass boats there's a style for you. It all depends on your personal ‘style’ and the functionality you're looking for.
Inflatable canoes and kayaks are great for buzzing around small lakes or ponds, but are fairly uncomfortable to fish from, especially for bass. These inflatable bass boats are best suited for smaller rivers. Inflatable pontoons are also great for small lakes and ponds and can be much more comfortable to fishing from, especially the larger inflatable pontoon boats equipped with a platform for standing. These boats are also great for those of you who enjoy fly fishing for bass.
The most popular and functional of these inflatable pontoon boats is the FoldCat by Sea Eagle. These inflatable bass boats are incredibly comfortable to fish from, are very maneuverable, and again cost a fraction of what a traditional bass boat costs. The FoldCat even comes with a free trial period and free shipping most of the time, so as far as inflatable bass boats go; the FoldCat is a great choice.
No matter what type of inflatable bass boat you choose, the point is that these boats are a great option for the frugal angler. The convenience that inflatable boats offer is difficult to match as well. Imagine being able to pack your bass boat into a bag or two and store it in your trunk or RV? Then simply inflating it when you reach your fishing destination? If this isn't the height of convenience, I don't know what is.
