    So I'm thinking about getting into ultra small boat fishing and am just leery of a kayak. I'm pretty top heavy and got some bad knees to boot. Saw those Sea Eagle Catamaran types and got interested in those. Has anyone owned the Sea Eagle Cats and what did you think?

    I have no experience with the Sea Eagles so I can't comment there.

    I do however, have a 10ft Jon boat that I absolutely love. It is small and light enough to throw in the the back of my pickup, and I fish out of it by myself with ease. The only thing I will be changing are the seats. I want some standard boat seats put in it, instead of sitting on just the bench. Other than that, it is great for fishing just about anywhere, and the way you can customize it to fit your needs is just about endless.

    Have you given any thought to a Gheenoe?

    There are several models of kayaks that are equipped for fishing. They usually offer a raised seating situation and are easy on the knees and very stable. I have the Native Utimate with the raised seat. I can actually stand and fish if I wish and at 62 years that is something. I think you will find that a kayak type vessel will be easier to propel and maneuver. Good Luck!

    1st season with a kayak and I love it . I have a ascend fs12t it's really a good boat u can stand in it but it would take some skill to confidently fish while standing . But 3-4 hour floats have been really enjoyable

    10 foot aluminum boat or a 10foot plastic pelican or basstender or the other brand. Any opinions
