Thanks for all the info above, I am taking it all in.

Forgot about budget, would like to stay under $500 or so, but can stretch to $1000 or so. I dont plan to use it a lot, but would like to have it for those times when bank fishing is annoying or impossible (weeded over edges or no real bank access and such)

I drive (most of the time) a 2014 Ford Escape and plan to use a roof rack to haul it around. Its not the longest car out there is the main reason I was looking at a 9.5ft one, a 12 ft should fit but definately overhang the front/back more.

Was/am seriously considering an inflatable one (for storage sake) but am wary of them as a lot of places I fish have a lot trees/branches underwater. No idea how tough they are against that kind of situation.

I will probably buy one early in 2020 but if I can get a deal before then I will get one.

Mine had been listed at $1000 before I saw it, then it was relisted at 900, so I offered 800 and got it for that. Watch Facebook marketplace and use Search Tempest to browse Craiglist. With not being in a hurry, you should find something nice in your price range. A lot of them have a paddle and vest included.


One thing that's been touched on is the seat. The metal frame/cloth mesh seats are so much more comfortable than the molded in seats. Spending hours in the better seat isn't bad. I really wouldn't want to spend that time on one of those hard molded in seats. The metal frame seats are usually adjustable height wise, and removable too if you want to use them along the riverbank.


Good luck, and happy fishing!
