Depends on what you fish for most. Since you fish for both, a pontoon might be the better option.

I think a center console is the best all around fishing boat. And if you ever want to go to salt water most of them have an aluminum trailer.

For sitting on brush piles and spending the whole day out there a pontoon can't be beat for comfort.
Hard fishing in hard to get places a CC works best but the comfort is non existent.


From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

I really like my 2072 tracker
Plenty of room and when I'm done, I just turn the water hose on it

there is no perfect boat period.pontoons are much to hard to load and unload and store unless you leave it in a slip.bass boat, deep v or cc without carpet as big as you can get would be my choice.just my opinion and its not worth 2 cents.

Bass boat for me. I fish darn near everyday the weather allows. Easy to load and unload, faster, easy to handle.

Someone on here has a Crestliner 2200 bay that looks really sweet. Might be something to look at.

I have had a Suntracker pontoon fishing barge 21 with a 50hp since 2005. We have loved the boat, no its not the fastest but it will get you to where you want to go. It handles rough water extremely well. I added some trailer guide-ons to help get the pontoon back on the trailer on windy days. I just added the motorguide 80lb xi5 trolling motor to the boat and love it. It held me over a brush pile taking several waves onto the deck and was still able to fish. Very comfortable to fish and lots of room. I even fish the CAT tournaments with it and can go up into the trees with no issues. All in all it is a great boat. I would like to upgrade to a tri-toon but man those things are expensive lol.
