I have fished rivers, ponds, and lakes with mine. the weight max is 350 and I am 230 and can stand with little to no issues and fish. its very stable and tracks good. I had a pelican castaway and these two are night and day. the pelican was a lot faster and the wind didn't bother me as much, but I am much more comfortable, have a lot more room, and very stable in the FS12T. I am about to add lights mine so I can see better at night. again I love mine!
