Default Anyone Use a Pontoon Boat

I was checking out one of those personal pontoon style boats at the store the other day. Thinking of upgrading from my little float tube. Anyone have one and would share their opinions/thoughts on it? I'm trying to justify the cost.

One drawback someone in the past mentioned to me when I was shopping for one was that you would want to make sure you can store it and drive with it put together. Not sure if that's true or not.

I like the idea of being able to sit higher up out of the water.

i baught one last year and love it. i fish everywhere with it. i fished out of a float tube for a while and was a litte skeptical t fish about the price and all that but after one hard year of fishing out of it, i love it. my buddy has one as well and keeps his in pieces, they arent very hard to re-assemble. but get a good quality one. i have one from bass pro and my buddy has a fish cat, they are both nice

Definitely let me know, that is the one I was looking at yesterday. It does seem to have just about everything I could think of. Can't talk the wife into it just yet, but hopefully before the end of summer.

I got one of theirs about three years a go and I love it. At the time they had one that was called the ODC Sport, which is the one I bought. Alway turns heads when I'm on the water. And I always put it together when I get to the lake. It sets up in about 15 minutes.

The one drwback with these is if you have to go very far. For example, if I'm going down to the inlet at Joe Wright, I DON'T want to carry this one down. (By the way, I paid under $200 for it. My buddy bought a Fish Cat for almost $400 the same ay and frankly, I like mine a LOT better!)
