Anybody fish in an inflatable boat?

Saw an ad for a Seahawk 4 for sale at Cabelas and I’m considering buying it Just don’t know if it’s going to be comfortable fishing in.
 

I live in an apartment so as much as I’d like to buy one storing a kayak or canoe would be too much of a pain, this seems like it could be a decent alternative to get me and my GF out on the water.

There's some vids to check out on Y.Tube with info on what type is best for fishing .  The better quailty ones are more punture resistant  of course .

This vid answers some questions about them

I've got a personal pontoon inflatable I use. I find it very comfortable to fish creeks and ponds but even deflated if still takes up a lot of space. It hangs off my garage wall when not in use.

Nice fishing tooner Steellee ! ....Will the new agm batteries work the trolling motor ? The big deep cycles are back killers for older angler like me ! 

After watching some videos on agm & lithium batteries verses deep cycle batteries , I can't decide which way to go for using a lighter battery for my 16' alum.canoe's trolling motor.  I would only need about 2 -3 hrs of slow trollling time ...  Most vids are long winded before reaching a conclusion .

Ya I am sure the lithiums would power it just fine. They are supposed to be about half the weight and extra time under power as you can run them all the way to empty with out power loss.  I use that minn kota and battery setup in my aluminum also so have a big group 31 battery. If the price keeps going down I will probably go that route myself when this one bites the dust

I know they sell folding kayaks. I've see some guy on YouTube who fishes out of one and he really likes it and he does well out of it. You might want to look into it.

Yeah I’ve actually looked at those as well. They’re definitely neat.
