what sort of water we using it in? rough or smooth and is this really a fishing boat? or you plan to do more with it?

for open and choppy water you want a deep V bottom for smaller lakes or smooth water you dont need a deep V.

you going to troll? drift? anchor? ther is tons od questions to recomend the best boat. but we need to know your over all plans and wishes first. for an allaround good boat look at mirrocraft boats. very good boats built like tanks. the not heavy and our good multi pupose boats.

Ranger and nitro make great bass boats. but you be certian to get tossed in the drink in rough water (3 foot waves) or bigger

not enough info to give a sensible answer. you should attend a boat show if in your area. also bass pro shops usually have a large selection of what you are seeking.
