Would this be suitable for fishing?
Sharp hooks do not go go well with inexpensive inflatable boats. I've gone fishing on the ocean with zodiacs before - but zodiacs are made with much more robust materials. And we had wetsuits. For inflatables, you should also bring an emergency repair kit (or at least good duct tape), along with all the standard safety equipment required for longer boats.
I've fished for bass with the single seat version of this and it works fine. The material is pretty stout, but I am still careful with the hooks. Never had a puncture though so can't say how easy or hard it is to put a hook in one.
I have fished from mine, and have gotten a hook caught on a seam, but it is a backed reinforced fabric, not just plain pvc or vinyl. the hook didn't puncture the shell material, and the air bladders are separate, inside the shell, so would need to go through two layers. You can add the accessory rail from them via amazon, etc, to mount rod holders, etc.
