Is it mainly budget or stability, or weight, or 1 vs 2 occupants, or WHAT? How do folks decide which of these options to get for smaller boat fishing? It would "seem" to me, a 12-14ft Jon boat could go about anywhere any of these smaller options could go and also have a decent gas motor to fish a little bigger water too? So other than just "personal preference", what are the specific qualifiers that make people choose one over another? I have a plastic 2-man and a 17ft bass and between the two, I don't have much gap to fish skinny water...I can go most places in the bass boat that I could go in the 2-man as long as there is a ramp. But equipment is COOL so I been thinking a lot about the other small-boat options and wondered if I really am missing out on anything.
