Rated 4.5 out of 5áby 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Pondhopper Perfect Pond Hopper Quality is very good, if your looking for a pond hopper where you cannot bring your bass boat and something you can toss in the back of your pickup here it is . Stable enough to not have to worry about capsizing and can be moved with a modest trolling motor. Light weight not to heavy at all for dragging around at launches. Gonna devise some wheels for it as I usually fish alone(or with my dog) not that I cannot drag it but would rather not worry about wearing it out. Great product just what I was looking for .Built a small deck for my dog who loves the water which fits on the rails for the chairs . July 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Bassreapa03 Great first time boat for any fisherman I try to get out fishing at least twice a week and usually had to borrow a kayak or canoe if I wanted to get to hard to reach places, but this boat is about the same price as a decent fishing canoe and a WHOLE LOT MORE value. I bought this about 5 days ago and couldn't be happier. I spent 8 straight hours out on the river trolling up and down the sides ripping out smallies with a buddy of mine. We stuck to the sides to avoid the larger boats but the wakes didn't cause any concern. Bought a 55lb thrust Minn Kota that did the job pushing us around with some force overall amazing boat for the lake/large pond fisherman. PROS: Comfort: The 10 feet are plenty of space for 2 30 year old 200lbish anglers with 7 foot baitcasters, a cooler of beverages, tackle and two trolling rods. The stock seats aren't bad. I did order new padded seats because I have a pregnant wife that will be accompanying me, but it isn't necessary. The seats swivel all the way around so there is never concern that you will cross lines with a fishing mate. Stability: This really surprised me. The larger boat's wake did very little to make us uncomfortable. If you steer the boat head on to the incoming waves, there is virtually no issues. When the wind blows, it doesn't drift too bad. I will be buying an anchor though to ensure I don't move. There were plenty of times we'd get caught up on a log or tree and had to move around/stand up which was easy to do without worrying about tipping. CONS Add-on Design: So the only thing that I'm a little disappointed in was the design with add-ons in mind. Since the boat is virtually two pontoons built into plastic, you have to add a little to make it a legit bass fishing machine. The plastic has all kinds of waves ,shallow storage compartments and short sides that don't really allow you to mount anything flush on the boat. Deeper cup holders, better pole holders (not too stable) and some flat surfaces to be able to mount some lights, an anchor pulley system, or fish finder. All of these small inconveniences, with a little effort on the buyers side can make for a great experience and a fishing boat to pass down. All in all AWESOME Boat! Had the most fun fishing last weekend than I have in long time. One last thing though, I was a little disappointed in the quality of the product when I first picked it up. It is advertised as new but had some scratches on the side, The seats were just thrown in loosely and the rubber guard was peeling back in some spots. I think this has less to do with Pelican and more how the store handled it. I expect a new product when I buy at a sporting good store if advertised as new. I could have easily bought on craigslist for a couple hundred dollars cheaper. All cosmetic issues, but just a little disappointed in the store. I'd consider looking at craigslist for a lightly used one to save money, it'll probably look the same. Just make sure you get paperwork with it. June 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Rog 7 years and still going! I bought my Pelican for a song and a dance off of a guy who used it twice! There was not one scratch on it at all, I was amazed! The cup holders are not able to be used as cup holders, so they should be renamed gear/accessory compartments instead. Others have mentioned the difficulty in keeping more than 3 rods aboard and this is completely accurate. Between the two of us, we've lost 3 rods overboard in 7 years, one of them an expensive setup in a 25 ft depth which really hurt! If the outside railings were just a couple inches higher, it would be better. We've had to replace each of the seat brackets, but were able to get those cheap enough online. We've also added padded fishing seats for better comfort. We use a 55 lb thrust trolling motor mounted on the bow and it pulls our big butts around pretty nicely. We also have made some modifications adding additional wiring and added a Dragonfly 5 fish finder and some switches, so this rig has some bells and whistles and gets the job done nicely! My fishing partner and I collectively weigh 550 total. We use it for some cartopper tourneys and even some local tourneys on smaller bodies of water (or if not, we just stick to the edges and coves) against $30,000 bass boats when allowed and beat them! The joke often said is "The two biggest guys in the smallest boat catch the biggest fish!" We exceed the 600 lb limit often with our own weight, gear (including full size cooler filled with water and pump for a live well), extra full size battery and anything else you take fishing. I LOVE my Pelican and until I get a bigger bass boat, this will do just fine for awhile longer! April 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Fred Great Boat Boat goes where I want to, light and easy to load in and out. I wish the cup holders were a little deeper, but, other than that I love it! July 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Norm Very good small lake or pond fishing boat. This boat is very easy to guide and floats through very shallow water. I am glad we purchased this boat. July 11, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5áby Chris39 Best Boat for the buck Got this boat last year from Dick's and love it. I haul it on a small trailer and just drop it into the water. I can't count the number of times I've fished with this thing. Very stable and can get through just about anything. I am 6 foot 1 320lbs and I fish with my son 6ft 220lbs. Add our gear trolling motor and battery and occasionally another adult. well over the 600lb max and this boat handles it all. May 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby BOB AWESOME THIS BOAT IS AWESOME BECAUSE IT IS LIGHT WEIGHT YET STURDY. I HAVE HAD MINE FOR 4 YEARS AND MY SEATS FINALLY BROKE. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GET REPLACEMENT SEATS? March 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby bowfishing Great little fishing boat This has been a great boat for me. It fits in the back of my truck so I don't need a trailer and I can off load it and load it on my truck my myself. I use a 55 lb thrust trolling motor and it goes 3.5 mph (according to the gps on my phone). The little "compartments" which are actually just indentations on the sides, come in very handy. I've been using it on Lake Mead this December and I have no fear of it capsizing. It is very stable. It does get rocked a lot from the wakes of other boats but I feel very safe in it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Dennis Pelican Bass Raider Revieew They are ok for small bodies of water I guess. 2 major points of concern however. The rod storage is bad. The design of this boat was not intended for someone who has more than 3 or 4 rods with them the space they used for cup holders etc etc should have just been an empty space for rod storage on port and aft cup holders are not needed. Also the material they used is good but on the bottem of the boat it should be thicker or reinforced better somehow. If you are alone, you can carry the boat so some dragging on the ground for short distances is a must. Well after a while it wears very thin and before long you have a hole in your boat. These two points were not thought of during the design of this little pond hopper. The pre wired feature is a plus, the stability is a plus, and the price is good. If you buy this boat mount trolling enging on the bow, as pulling through water is better than pushing and the pre wired feature is great for bow mounts. I have used the heck out of these boats, pretty good little small water boats, other than the two flaws I have written about. December 8, 2014
