  • What Boat?

    Hey guys,
    I am looking to buy my first boat. I have grown up fishing strictly fresh water. A few years ago, I was stationed in Mississippi on the gulf and caught the saltwater fishing bug. Now that I am back in the region, I was looking to get a boat that could handle smaller lakes, rivers, and backwater/inlets around the beach. After doing a bunch of looking around, I figured that a 14-16 ft jon with a 20-25 hp would be fine. I am just unsure if it could handle the inlets. I would assume that it could since I see kayaks back there. It would have to be something I can fish the lakes/rivers around Ft. Bragg, NC during the week, and hit the coast on the weekend. I don’t really want to spend too much (5,000). Any input would help. Thanks
