Field & Stream canoes
Posted by: old_user on Apr-01-09 8:24 AM (EST) Category: Canoes
I was in Dick's Sporting Goods last night and saw a "Field & Stream Sportsman 15 Square Stern Canoe". I can't find any info on the web about this canoe, value, stability, etc. Does anyone have any feedback about this canoe?

weight about 110 lbs., beam about 41"; stable and wide fishing/duck hunting platform. Due to the wide beam, weight and hull design, it takes a lot of effort to paddle it. However, a motor on the square stern works just fine. A good value if your use does not involve car topping, hand carryiing, and any destination paddling.

Well, I'm new to this and I'm confused as to what to get. I will be using it with my wife a lot so I definitely need stability. We will be mostly using it on rivers traveling up and down. Our idea was to paddle a little bit to a destination, spend time there and outboard motor the way back. I also wanted to use it for fishing. I also was looking at the Pelcan Bayou. So when you say it's hard to paddle, it worrys me. We would only be going 5-6 miles probably, although we would still want it to be enjoyable. I am probably wanting to much from one canoe.

It's very well suited for fishing slow moving rivers. It's wide, has enormous initial stability, is comfortable, and is practically indestructible.
