Which one is better on small lakes? Flat Bottom Jon Boat, flat bottom w/ v nose or a pontoon style boat such as a Pelican 10E or something else?

I have an 8' baby bass hunter and love it. That being said, I only have a trolling motor to get around with so I'm limited on how much travel I'm willing to do but it is incredibly stable. If I had a Jon boat of some sort them I would have more options on pushing it around and could cover more water. Those are the 2 things that should be considered. The flat bottom or small pontoon style will get you into a few more places if you fish shallows and creeks.

Generally, the lighter it is, the lower it sets, the more comfortable it is, and the faster it goes with trolling motor, the better it is. Better to have something you can launch anywhere, without a trailer or boat ramp. A one-man inflatable or solid pontoon is ideal, unless you need more room for other people. Just my humble opinion others will have their own.

Thanks for your opinions, I just bought a pelican 10E and look forward to getting it out on the water.

FWIW I think the Pelican is more stable that the others. I have a 14' jon and a 10' pelican and would rather be in the 10 pelican, especially if I am standing up.

Enjoy!
