Buying a boat for catfishing is fun. First, think about your budget. Do you want to buy a new one or one that is used? There are many used boats online that have lots of life left in them. You can get them for a good price too due to the number of people financially in a crunch right now. If you don’t plan to use the boat often though it is best not to buy a new one. You want to be able to get a return on your investment. Do you plan to use the boat for any other type of fishing? Do you want the boat to be large enough for several people to fish with you or to go on your own? Comfort is something to consider too. Look at the seats in the catfishing boat. Make sure you won’t be uncomfortable in it for hours at a time.
