My First Boat This Year..want To Do A Jon Boat..looking For Others With Jon Boats And How They Are Set Up

Recommended Posts

 Im thinking a 15-17ft by 48" wide Jon boat.Small horsepower outboard and a pair od good trolling motors.A good fish finder and maybe even one of those underwater camera systems

they have...It looks like a fish finder and has like 50ft of cord,small illuminated camera on the end..small about the size of a 35mm film cannister.

 

 most times it would be small lake fishing,some river fishing..once in awhile maybe Table rock,or Lake of the O'.I know that flat bottom boats dont handle rough waters well so i am always going to aware of that.

 

 Want to see how your Jon Boats are set up,looking for ideas and what worked for others.

 

Thanks

Bobby

I have a 16ft fiberglass v bottom boat that I am getting ready to list for sale..  It was my first boat and has served me really well...  The hull actually handles lakes pretty well but with any chop you will get some spray..  I have this set up with a Johnson 35 hp tiller steer, 50lb Minn Kota on the bow with foot pedal (built flat casting deck and carpeted for front), have Humminbirds where I drive boat and at bow,  6 gallon gas tank will fuel all day..  I now have a 18.5 ft bass boat and the main diff is more storage, costs more to run, and goes faster...  I will try to get some pics up.. 

 

Good luck getting started!
