Even though I have been a long time float tuber, fishing everything from the round donuts to the high tech float tubes of today, I find myself spending more time just stalking the shores of my local ponds on foot. I am, actually, enjoying it every time I get the opportunity. Looking for hiding spots, structures, weeds, feeding lanes, and other fishy looking places for good fish to hangout. In other words, even though I own a high tech modern day float tube, it spends its days in the shade of the garage.
While scrolling around on the internet the other day, I came across an interesting new concept for accessing the ponds, or lakes for that matter. Thought I would share with you this new mode of on the water transportation.
Venture Outdoors VOModular 5G Pontoon Boat. Let me say right off the bat, I have never seen this boat in person or talked with anyone from Venture Outdoors about having one. Just something I saw on the internet that was different and I felt needed a shout out to those of you who fish ponds and lakes by accessing the water instead of fishing from shoreline.
From their website I have borrowed the following information on this Modular Pontoon.
" 5.0' modular rigid kick boat, standard rowing kit with 5' T6061 aluminum oars, 5' long x 12" wide pontoons with internal storage access via 8" round sealing hatch with improved seal design. An innovative design that assembles in one minute. (USA) weighs approximately 50 pounds including oars, oar locks and 4-point fly apron with raised edges and convenient printed ruler. Carries up to 225 pounds + 50 pounds cargo weight. Disassembled unit transports easily in the smallest of cars, the seat bottom and seat back surfaces are comfortable with ergonomic lumbar support. The rigid pontoons do not require an inflation pump and are virtually puncture proof.
