12 foot Jon boat for North Jersey ducks?

Postby knox750 » Fri May 11, 2012 10:21 pm

Thinking about getting a 12 foot Jon boat for my first duck boat. Any recomendations for boat model or camouflaging it? 12 foot is my limit bc its going in the back of a pickup, no trailer. Also looking for any info for north jersey areas to hunt with the boat. I'm starting to do some scouting of northern WMA's and public lands. And if anyone is interested in trying the new rig out this fall and doing some hunting, pm me about it. Thank you guys, I have posted a few times here before and it has always been helpful.

why cant u trailer a boat? 12 ft is small man, not only that the 12 footers tend to be narrow and not very stable. if i were u id go with a 1442 or even a 1448. u can get a 1442 or 1448 jon from tracker with a brand new load rite trailer for farely cheap, the trailer ,im positive, is only 600 brand new.
