Im gonna check into gettin a boat here soon. I want to be able to go into the river (MS River) and into lakes. Id like a flat bottom boat cause they seem more in my price range.

How big of a boat would I need to go in the river safely and where are good places to look at buying. I have no credit so I cant finance.

How big is the river where you fish? Do you got barge traffic and other bigger pleasure boat traffic?
If the river or lake isn't real big you could probably get away with a 14 ft.

Craigslist and local papers and boat trader magazines, etc.

Give us a approx location and we can help you search. What can you afford? Average useable half decent alum boat will run 1-2 grand. Under that is super plains Jane.

GOBR, I took a '78, 14' V-Hull Starcraft bare bones row boat jawn, with a 6.6 Chrysler outboard tiller, and flounder fished, crabbed, and ran out the Cape May inlet and back through 4' wakes from the 50 buck a piece party boating tools.

And I also did a lap in the big D chasing stripers out of the Chester ramp.

If you know what the phuck you are doing, you can drive that sumbitch to hell and back, and safely, yet on the edge. AND CATCH FISH.

You got some mojo. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/cool1.gif
