New Boat

Vtflyfish,
Your new toy - OSG Stealth Pro? - for floating /rowing looks great, congrats.

Although new to ADK forum, I'm not new to chasing fish with fur & feathers.
We've used canoes on various waters, but have zero knowledge when it comes to float tubes / pontoons.

Prior to posting this inquiry, I've tried to research reviews & read as many ADK forum threads as possible on the subject.

Some folks like to fish these boats without oars while chasing trout in ADK still water ponds- ie. Trinity & 420 UL - but I would like to fish with the option to row.
I understand adding a rowing package to the boat will increase weight, but some of the new models are quite light.

The Low Pro X by DS has my attention at <10lbs. It would require waders, kick fins & pump but I believe it would still be light enough to carry / pack to many ponds.
DS products have some negative reviews on other sites, most of which pertain to his whitewater raft claims.

My intention is use this boat on ADK still water ponds only, so I'm not certain those issues would apply to me. Of course, anytime you see negative reviews, it raises concern.

Anyone have any experience using the Low Pro X or other DS products?

Is there another boat out there that may fit my needs?
Thanks in advance

Transport

Transport has always been the one item keeping me from doing these types of trips. Ive bee. Looking at rock river, cedar river and the gorge area. But Im not ok with leaving anything for 30-45 minutes for bike ride or hike back to car.

Hi Schultz. You’re on! I’ve actually moved to a canal on the south shore. I’m currently shopping for a center console boat to take advantage of the location. In the fall I plan on taking it out east to fish Montauk and Orient. If you can make it down here you have an open invitation. The fishing last fall for false albacore was terrific.

Hey Glenn,
I haven't fished the Sound since I was a kid living in CT. Sounds great. PM me your contact info. Always wanted to try Montauk Point. Have heard so much about it.

Note to longtime Forum members: Ask Glen where HIS new boat is.
Are you talking about that stretch of Otter Creek that starts around Tabor and heads north towards Wallingford? I drive past that every day to work, and I'm planning on trying my kayak on it this year.
