For any bass angler who doesn’t have tens of thousands of dollars lying around to spend on a bass boat, a one person fishing vessel is the next best option. I’m not referring to a float tube either, which could easily be considered a one person fishing vessel; I’m referring to an actual one man bass boat that keeps you the angler completely out of the water. The issue with many “one man bass fishing vessels” is that they require the angler to be in the water in some way, shape, or form.
The one man bass boats being outlined in this article are just that; boats that keep the angler out of the water. One person fishing boats can be an extremely effective bass fishing tool for the individual angler, and these boats cost a fraction of what traditional bass boats cost.
These one man bass boats are 2 of the best one person fishing boats on the market today, and the one that’s right for you is up to individual preference. These boats are being listed in no particular order.
- The Frameless Pontoon – The frameless pontoon is a great one man bass boat. Because it has no “frame” is weighs only about 40 pounds, so this boat is extremely portable. Couple this with the fact that this one person vessel can be stood in and you have a perfect one man fishing vessel. This boat is constructed from extremely durable material that will withstand anything that you can throw at it. The frameless pontoon can be used for bass fishing in lakes, ponds, or even rivers.
- Catamaran/Kayak Hybrid – The catamaran/kayak hybrid is a unique and extremely effective one man bass boat. This boat is actually 5 boats in 1 and is one of the best 1-person bass boats on the market today. This boat can be powered with oars, paddles, or a small motor, and can easily get you to where the bass live. I use my Paddleski hybrid for trout fishing in the spring and fall and bass fishing in the summer. This 1-person fishing boat is the perfect alternative to high prices fishing boats.
If you are looking for an affordable alternative to high priced bass fishing crafts, either of these one man bass crafts will serve you well. I know I’ve had my Paddleski hybrid for more than 10 years and couldn’t be happier.
