Have you ever considered a small fishing boat to solve the "having a boat" problem? Boats can be quite a substantial investment for fishermen, but what I've found out is that they don't have to be. There are small fishing boats available that solve the "having a boat" problem and don't require a substantial up front investment.

Inflatable fishing boats are a viable alternative for anglers and in this article I'll outline some of the more popular and effective solutions available in the inflatable boat market. The bottom line is that when it comes to small fishing boats an inflatable boat can be just what the doctor ordered.

One of the most important things to remember when it comes to these types of boats is to make sure that you purchase from a quality manufacturer. Buying a quality inflatable boat makes all the difference in the world. Most people think inflatable boats are a joke because they've never seen a quality product. Quality manufacturers stand behind their boats with thinks like money back guarantees, free trial periods, and/or free or discounted shipping.

Inflatable Canoes - Inflatable canoes can be a great option for fishermen. These small fishing boats are large enough to carry two anglers and their fishing gear. These boats are extremely maneuverable and lightweight for any portages that might be necessary. In my opinion inflatable canoes are best for fishing in rivers and streams, but they also work well in lakes. I like to ride my inflatable canoe down my favorite river, stopping at all my favorite fishing areas to fish. When fishing in this way I like to actually get out of the canoe and fish each "good looking" area as I go.

Inflatable Pontoons - Inflatable pontoons are a great small fishing boat for anglers. As a matter of fact, when it comes to small fishing boats, inflatable pontoons might be the best option. These boats are made up of two inflatable pontoons with a seat (or seats) in between them. The smaller versions carry 1 angler, while the larger versions carry up to 4 anglers. These boats are very maneuverable and stable. Some versions even allow the angler to be above the water on a platform, while smaller versions require the angler to have their legs in the water. Fly fishermen are familiar with smaller inflatable pontoon boats (1 angler boats).

Inflatable Kayaks - Inflatable kayaks are much like inflatable canoes, just a bit more streamlined and durable. Inflatable kayaks are also usually a bit smaller than inflatable canoes. These small fishing boats are great for fishing in rivers and streams. Some inflatable kayaks can even be taken in class IV rapids. These small fishing boats are great for the single angler.

Any of these inflatable fishing boats would be a great choice if you like to spend time fishing. Is one better than the other? Which is the best is largely up to personal preference, but any of these are a great choice.
