1. Get the most power you can afford--you can't have too much.
2. A bow mount motor will give you better boat control while fishing or navigating.

Realistically you can get by fine with a $100, #30 thrust model, the brand doesn't really matter. They're all ok, none are great. I still use a #30 thrust on my 14 footer and will until it stops working.
If you have more money, buy more motor. If you don't just buy a cheap one, get the longest lasting battery you can afford and remember to charge it after every trip.
