I do both, bank and boat fishing. Recently got out of tourney fishing and sold my bigger Triton bass boat last spring. Picked up this little jon boat and spent the winter remodeling it. Had a great time fishing out of it this past year once I got over the part about not being able to go 60 mph down the lake any more :)
Top boat is a 16.5 fy Fisher Avenger Deep V, Sold my bassboat and purchased this. A lot more options on different waters! Carolina Skiff is a great shallow water boat that goes where a lot of boat cannot go! I have a 25hp Mariner OB plus a 9.8 Merc OB that can be used on it.
Here is my favorite fishing platform, on the bank of my favorite pond. 15 foot 8 inches of old town plastic, One or two paddle power, no bells or whistles.
This will be the view from my house someday when I can get the money together to start building.
