Used Bass Boat


Recommended Posts

I have been fishing out of an aluminum 14' flatbottom in the past and want to find a good used bass boat. I love to bass fish and want to find a boat that is much easier to fish out of. Also, I wouldn't mind doing some tourney fishing. I have had the whole debate of aluminum vs. fiberglass in my head, but since then have almost convinced myself to go for fiberglass.  My biggest problem with aluminum boats have been the wind. I look to spend in the 6 to 7 thousand dollar range to get myself started. What brand or type of bass boat do you think will best suit my need? I really appreciate your help! Thanks!!

If you get it watch out for the oil injection system on that johnson/evinrude, easily blow up a motor. In fact I would disable it and mix the fuel/oil myself.

I had ( still have) a 14 jon boat. 2 yrs ago I bought a 92 Procraft 18' with a 175 Merc on it for $8000. The boat was in great shape and I love it. I didn't know how I bass fished out of that small boat all those years. Good luck in your search.

 Bashunter whatever you do make sure you look in all the corners and under everything and carry a rubber mallet. Tapping on the transom will tell you if it is solid and just give the boat a thorough inspection. Run it see how it handles and make sure YOU like it. There are alot of boats in the price range you are looking to spend that will fit your needs just make sure and dont buy someones problems. Also if you come to the point that you really like a certain boat have a mechanic look at the motor. If someone is honest they wont mind you drivin and havin a mechanic look at the motor. Good luck and TIGHT LINES.
