Introducing the ALL NEW Fish Cat Scout! The Scout is a one man, do everything fishing craft. It is just 35 lbs, easy to carry and perfect for accessing new fishing waters. The overall design includes the best features of a float tube and a pontoon boat. The low profile makes it great for lakes and the pontoons are stable on rivers and in rapids. The open-floor cockpit makes fin kicking an option so the angler can fish and guide the boat at the same time. The open floor also provides an easy way to stand up and fish in shallow water without the need to climb in and out of the boat. The Fish Cat Scout is constructed with a durable PVC skin to protect the vinyl bladders. The dual layer design also creates a stiff hull so the boat won’t flex when operating at full pressure.

Bulkley River Float. I had bought the OutCast Scout this summer to fish mainly lakes, but I took it to BC to fish The Bulkley River this fall for Steelhead . At first my fishing pals thought that I would be a little "under boated" as they said. But let me tell you that this rig was made for this type of fishing .It tracked and ferried from one side of the river to the other effortlessly , stayed true and was very easy to hold a straight line . The only thing that I changed were the oars . At five feet I found that I couldn't get enough blade into the water, so I upgraded to a pair of five and a half foot ones that were a little bit beefier, and they worked out a lot better. So all in all I put this craft though its paces , was not gentle with it and worked it hard . It performed at a top notch level , a pure 10 out of 10 . A very safe and reliable craft that anyone would enjoy. Regards Bob Saskatchewan Canada.

After weeks of research and, years of trials, rafting and oar boating, I have found the best fishing craft, your Fish Cat Scout. I just this Tuesday picked up the Scout and Fly Fished the Madison from 3 dollar bridge to Ennis Lake in 4 10 hour days. I have rowed framed Avons and your pontoons that behave worst and found this as capable. I realize how much engineering must have been put into the tube size, shape and over all ergonomics put into this craft. It was rare that I could not find a spot to stand and fish every riffle, bank, slack water, cliff lined bend and Ennis Lake wetland inlet. I really do not know how to explain how effortless the Scout floats when you stop mid river to fish. Standing below the seat with the foot bar restraining the craft there is almost no presser. I have found the pontoons sometimes tedious to restrain and sometimes tall to stand and fish from. I always needed a walking stick handy for stability until now. With the oars folded my catch could not hang up on the Scout. I had several fish run from side to side with my line sliding on the tube from right pontoon to left pontoon across the back with no hang up on the craft. This is the trickiest part of landing 20 inches of fat healthy Rainbow Trout while standing in any water craft. Walking in the Scout, even while casting, is a joy, everything you kick; knock or fall into is soft and inflated! Thank you for one of the best of 18 years of Madison River fishing. I owe most of this years experience to the ease and access your Scout allowed me. I started writing this to ask one favor, please contact me if you drop the Scout from your products line, I will need another 8 or 10 years form now.
