One of the best ways to fish a river, small lake, or pond is with a mini pontoon boat, and in this article I’m going to list and discuss some of the more popular mini pontoon boats that are available to anglers. These boats are great for many types of fishing, from fly fishing in Oregon to largemouth bass fishing in Alabama.
The biggest key to purchasing any of these mini pontoon boats is to make your purchase from a quality manufacturer. If you purchase your boat from a quality manufacturer it will last for many years of fishing. If on the other hand you skimp, you can become very disenfranchised and think that mini pontoon boats are not a viable option.
So, how do you know you’re dealing with a quality manufacturer A quality manufacturer will stand behind their mini pontoon boats with things like free trial periods, money back guarantees, and free or discounted shipping and handling charges. Any or all of these things show you that you are dealing with a good manufacturer who makes a quality boat.

FoldCat Boat – While the above boats can take upwards of 45 minutes to assemble, you can be fishing on the FoldCat in under 5 minutes. Of all the mini pontoon boats in this article the FoldCat may be the best and most economical option. But, just because the FoldCat is less expensive than comparable boats it doesn’t mean that the FoldCat isn’t a quality product. The FoldCat is made by Sea Eagle, a quality manufacturer. These boats offer everything that an angler could want, and perform well in both lakes and rivers.
