Use these four tips to narrow down your search:

1. How Many People Will Be On Board?

Realistically identify the fishing situations and conditions where you'll use your boat for the majority of your time. Sure that bass boat looks sleek, but it'll be a tough fit for your six fishing buddies. Evaluating how many people will regularly be on board will help determine length, beam, horsepower, and trailer type.

2.Where Are You Planning To Go Fishing?

If you're fishing local water regularly then you'll have an easier time picking a hull design. But if you're changing spots that range from small ponds to big lakes, and then you add in several ocean trips you will find that the jon boat that is perfect in a small pond can be a liability in the ocean. 

3.What Is Your Budget?

It always makes sense to have the best and most reliable boat for the majority of your fishing conditions. You'll spend less time on repairs and maintenance and more time fishing. So if you're going to buy a new boat be sure it's covering your prime fishing situation. 

A good way to fund a second or third boat is to buy them used, particularly at the end of the season. You won't have to spend a lot of money on a boat you'll use only in specific situations.

It's not a far stretch to own a few boats, and going in with a well-thought-out plan that matches your fishing and financial plan is the best way to make it happen. Use our boat explorer tool to learn more about all of the different types of fishing boats that are on the market.
