Great Value Fish Cat 4 Float Tube Review

For those who spend 25 days or less a year angling, consider the Fish Cat 4 float tube for its quality construction, good value and solid manufacturer’s warranty.

Made from strong 500 Denier PVC fabric,  widely recognized for its durability and versatility, this fabric offers excellent abrasion resistance and tear strength.

As for storage, both side saddle bags are over sized for all your gear and the bow of the boat makes for great overflow storage if you want to bring a dry bag out.

The Fish Cat 4 has a very stable platform and sits high enough for an angler to get good leverage on large trout and bass.

What’s in the box?

When you order the Fish Cat 4 you get a foam seat and seat back, two big cargo pockets, and an adjustable stripping apron. Other features include two Boston valves, sewn seams and a repair kit. This is best suited for fishing still water in lakes, ponds, and reservoirs.

  • 1 – 6” x 6” Black PVC
  • 1 – 6” x 6” Olive Pack Cloth
  • 1 – 6” x 6” Grey PVC

This float tube design keeps you seated above the water. The higher vantage point makes it easier to cast long distances when lake fishing and is generally more comfortable when you have most of your body out of the water. Plus, the lack of body mass in the water makes the Fish Cat 4 easier to maneuver with fins when compared to other belly boat models.

The Fish Cat 4 uses a closed cell foam back and seat. The foam pieces fit into pockets that are sewn into the seat cover.
