Ive been tossing around the idea of purchasing a boat and I really feel like I would use it enough to justify having it. I have been looking on Craigslist for awhile now but I guess I'm stuck on a few questions specific to the area. I have never had a boat, so I'm kinda clueless on the boat necessities of the area.
1) outboard-prop or jet? I will be doing a lot of fishing in the summer and hunting in the winter. I dont like the inefficiency of the jet, but I like the accessibility of using it. That being said, can I use a prop on the snake in some places? Ive been down it a few times in kayaks and it looks pretty deep in most areas? I understand its a risk.
2) I've seen a few bass boats that would be awesome but the low profile scares me on the river. Comments on that? I THINK I would like something with more side walls but do I really need it?
3) Can you change the lower end seasonally? Jet-winter, prop-summer?
4) What do you guy hunt out of?
I would fly fish out of it a ton. Crappie and bass fish out it. Troll for KOKs, really every kind of fishing in every water body near by. And hunt from every water body near by.
