Hello All,

I'm currently using a float tube but really want to upgrade to a pontoon. I mostly bass fish in lakes, reservoir and "The Delta". My budget is $300-$400. Also, I'm looking for a pontoon that can be upgraded (e.g. trolling motors, multiple rod holder, tackle boxes, live well). Please advice.

PS. Thank you in advance for all the helps and suggestions. This is a great and resourceful site. Thank you all, again!!!

Hey Ferdie, Welcome to the board. Here's a good deal on a water skeeter on ebay for under $300 I think most kickboats can all be customized with all the goodies! I'm sure someone else will chime in with other suggestions! have fun

I saw one at the Rohnert Park Costco that looked like a great deal. 9 foot pontoons and looked like it was well constructed for $ 259.00. Not sure what brand it was.

Hi guy,
Enrico here from IBBF-TEAM(www.ibbf-team.it), Italy.
If you go to Oregonfishing.com you can find great sale in kickboat.I have a Backcast model 2004 and it's full optionals.The only gap comes from the steel frame a bit heavy in transport.As far as the custom you can link all that you need on the frame, like bags, nets and so on.I use a Minnkota 30 trolling engine and it runs lovely.I also linked on the back a sun panel to recharge my tiny motorbikes' battery and ensure to myself hrs of full pleasure!

Get well guy!

Also if you contact our President Rich Caro, he has worked out a deal with bucks bag. They have a comparable pontoon to skeeter and it's call the High Adventure. It runs about 400, 8 ft pontoon, oars, motor mount, and battery mount. I think it's great deal and well we get a discount. Not to sure what's our discount but you can definitely save at least a 100. Contact Rich and can set up to where it will delivered right to your door step. Click on the link to bucks on our home page and take a look.

Welcome to our forum.
I like the Bucksbag Southfork model. I also have a skeeter and its a great boat for the bucks spent. The south fork has a stainless steel frame and rocker plontoons. The skeeter has a powder coated frame and the plontoons creat more drag while oaring around the lake. This drag makes for a much slower boat. The south fork is also lighter in weight which is nice if you need to carry it from the truck to the honey hole.

I can save you some $$$ on a Bucksbag as a non member to our club, but I can save you a lot more $$$ if you are a club member. Feel free to contact me any time and we'll set you up or contact me after you buy your boat and lets fish.
