They are an extremely stable fishing platform and like sitting in an easy chair at home . Easy entry and exit , with a section of rope tie across the front endof the toons you can jump out between the toons and wade and the boat goes where you go. The reason you probably don't see many in Florida is they are a lot slower on slow moving water and wind makes it really hard to control them. Yet on a river with a good flow I will take them over a canoe or kayak any day. JMO

I don't have a pontoon but I love fishing ponds with a belly boat. You are always fishing instead of fighting the weeds, snags, and snakes along the bank. I have fished some slower river water with the belly boat and really enjoyed it.

I use a pontoon. Mine won't handle fast water, but I have had it on slow moving rivers. The pontoon is incredibly stable, and once I am to where I want to fish I can put up the oars. Using fins to control the boats leaves both hands free for fishing, while keeping myself positioned exactly where I want to be. And it is incredibly relaxing.
