In this episode of How 2 Tuesday I’m going to help you pick a boat for what you want to do. The question of “how do I pick a boat” comes up quite a bit.
First of all, there are a lot of activities that people love to do on the water, and every boat you choose is a compromise. If you pick a skiff type boat you are not going to be able to go off shore very well.
A frequent issue that I hear is someone in the Florida Keys who loves to go flats fishing. In this case I ask someone what type of boat they would like for their activity. For instance if all they wanted to do was catch Permit or Bonefish then a skiff would be excellent.
Then another question is whether you plan to take multiple passengers out fishing as well. Do you want to take your kids out?
