    What kind of boat do you fish out of??? Aliminum John..Center Console Aluminum,,, Center Console Glass?? Converted Bass Boat,, Canoe, Yak???:eek:oooh:

    With all the people on here I was just wondering what everyone fishes out of.. Do different areas have a more of a opinion on a different style of boat than others???

    Ive got a 17.5 Triton Aluminum hull boat 50hp merc that does great lots of storage,and rides well and is stable but I can see advantages to other desighnes as well , Ive been looking at the River Pro jet boat and they seem great for shalow water, and the Lund boats for bigger water, Thanks everyone, just thinking about my next boat...:wink: is there a perfect boat or do i just need two or three boats,, I fish shalow rivers "or I did untill I riped the lower unit of my river boat a couple of weeks ago "old blue" .. and big rivers...

    1448 flatbottom jon boat, tiller steer. 25hp yamaha on the back. Works for my needs, but then again mine isn't just a fishing boat, it does crabbing, duck hunting, and some fishing for other species than cats.

    here's my rig.....a 14' jonboat with a mercury 8hp. I wouldn't take it on any real big water, but it does good for where i usually fish. I had no intentions on gettin a boat but came across a real good deal on the motor.
