For getting to those hard-to-fish places!
Every angler worth his sweat would understand how it is like. Either you go to your favorite fishing hole or discover a new location there will always be those not quite accessible places. The corner where all the splashes are, that spot you located through satellite images and that weeds edge that is just out of your casting range. Shore based fishing can sometime suck. And that is where a boat may determine the difference between a fish-less or a bountiful day. Or a day out hooking-up small fishes or that fish of a lifetime.

Inflating and deflating the Sevylor Fish Hunter
Takes us about 15-20 minutes to fully inflate using a Sevylor foot pump and about the same amount of time to deflate and pack up. We opted for the foot pump as we figure we could use the additional workout! There are 4 valves that you’ll need to inflate. They are number coded to indicated the sequence.
As for deflating, all you’ll have to do is pop open the valves, sit on the sides and let the air out.
