    Im lookin for a boat what would you recommend for river fishing and lake. But it would need to be a family boat too. I want a boat that i can spray out and take too the lake and tub and have fun. To tell you the truth, I want a jon boat that would do bought. is there a boat that would do that?

    Moswaprat, There are many makes and models of combination boats available. The fish and ski V hulls would likely fit your bill best. I saw a ranger today with a ski pole setup on the rear part of the transom. I would be willing to bet one of the larger jon boat manufacturers offers a ski pole for there bigger boats. Vern

    I would look for a good sized aluminum semiV boat with a 50 or better motor. The carpet is nice but hard to clean. Back in high school I skied behind a old trihull terry fiberglass with a 35hp. A 50 would sling a tube like no tomorrow. :eek:oooh:

    as far as fishing the aluminum is the way to go.
