I've wandered around the boats for sale section but don't really see anything for me. Where are some good places to look for a reasonably priced bass boat? Or does anyone have one for sale they haven't listed?

What's reasonably priced? Plenty of good deals to be had out there if you know your budget and wants

Look at southeasttexas.com in classifieds. They have categories for: Boats, Freshwater boats, and Aluminum boats.

I'm looking to stay around $3000. Havent really thought about age. 16 foot min and motor just something reliable that will get me where I need to go. Thought about maybe an older bass tracker or maybe an '87-'90's skeeter.

In that price range, I think you will have your best luck with dfw craigslist.

That's where I have been looking but it seems like a lot of people want to sell a $1 bill for $20. Lol.

Prices are always negotiable or walk. Plenty of running boats around for 3gs. Do not buy without lake test. You mentioned it being your first boat, take a friend with a clue If you know anyone. On older boats look out for transom issues and floor rot issues.

They are out there, you just have to be patient. People think that it is warm so boat prices go up and people will overpay.

First bass boat. I've had a boat before and we've got several in my family. I feel comfortable as far as what to look for and have walked on several for various reasons. I'll just stay patient and keep looking. Thanks for all your input and advice, it's not falling on deaf ears!

I have a 94 Skeeter SS90 dual console I Might sell If someone offered me enough for it. It's a 16.2ft with an 88 Evinrude, Minnkota Maxxun trolling motor, and a Humminbird Side Imagaing at the console. It's a great stater boat, or first boat. I fish out of it because it's all I need for now. It's my second SS90, and those boats were built solid, and they are pretty darn fast.
