I'm looking to buy a jon boat to take around to small freshwater lakes and ponds around Missouri. I'm looking for a boat that me and another person could load and unload by hand and carry a short distance to the water. I'm looking for a flat bottom boat that would work well for me and one other person to fish out of. I'd be attaching a trolling motor to the boat to get around with. I would really want a boat that two people could stand up and fish in. I don't need any wood decks or anything like that, just room for both of us to stand and fish. What size would you recomend? Would a 12' work?
Also, have any of you ever hauled a 12' jon boat in the back of a full sized truck? Does it work well?
