I love this question! My first answer would be the person fishing from it. Meaning, there are many on these boards who could consistently locate and catch slabs from anything that floats (I aspire to join that exclusive club some day).
But if what you're asking is, "Assuming money was no object -- describe your ideal crappie boat," I'd say:
- Big enough to withstand steady 15MPH wind
- Big enough to fish three anglers
- Minimum 40HP motor
- REALLY good electronics and GPS that make finding structure simple
- Easy to haul, put in and take out of the water
And ... drum roll here ... the one thing I REALLY want but do not yet have: A Motor Guide Xi5 with Pinpoint GPS!!!!
