Looking into getting a used boat it the hopefully near future. What's everyone's one opinion on a good crappie boat? Price range is open at the moment, ideally it would be a boat that could be used for sport as well, pull a tube or wake board behind would appeal to the wife more.

Buy the Ski Nautique super air and put a long shaft 36 volt T/M on it, be sure to stay out of standing timber with this rig though. cheers

Wake board was the wrong term... Knee board maybe. God I hate those wake boats when were fishing.

I will give two thumbs up for my Alumacraft Tournament Sport 185 with a Honda 130HP. I've got a family of 4, and we have tubed out of it many times, and is also a great boat to fish from. High sides keep the kiddos in place, and 4 pedestal seats make things comfortable.

I was finally able to find a used Lund. For me, this is the best all around style of fishing boat. I like the high sides and pedestal seat for comfort. Mine has a 150 and could pull all the skiers you want.

Used Lunds are hard to come by. I've been looking for awhile now.

There's a Lund fish and ski on Boat Trader in San Antonio right now. Only has a 50hp on though.

A bass boat is hard to beat as a fishing platform. I have a Ranger 681 Fisherman that is designed to be a walleye boat and I like it fine.

I've come to the conclusion that I need 4 boats for everything that I want to do.
