Have you ever considered the idea of getting a kayak. Most fishing models will carry between 400 and 600lbs of weight. Set up time ussually involves taking off your car or truck placing in the water and getting on board and shoving off. Fish finders, trolling motors, and live wells are all possiblities. Kayaks are generally light weight and with the help of a home made cart I have trecked my kayak(s)loaded up with all my gear to remote launch locations that have been miles away from where I parked. Some other benifits are Plenty enough room for you and your gear. A float tube or kick boat can't compare to the speed or range of a kayak. If you fish salt water you will have the ability to launch through breaking surf to reach more seldom fished waters. I have only had my kayak in fresh water twice but I know some people who do more freshwater yak fishing. If you use the double anchor system you will stay perfectly stationary in the wind. If you want a slow drift try a drift sock. You may find it's the only anchor you will ever need in a kayak.

I was suprised at their strength. I have landed my kayaks on rocks dropped them off my truck and after all the abuse still strong as the day I got them. A new one will run between $400- $800 depending on make model options. You can find a good used one for $300- $500. I have bought both of my kayaks used about 4 years ago. I paid $400 for them and could sell them for what I bought them for. I've used them on about once a week sometimes more since I bought them. Eventually I plan on upgrading to a boat but for now they provide a cheap and easy to use fishing vessel. Good luck with what ever you decide on.
