I stayed humble with my first, but love it so far. Beats renting a jon for $30 a day.
2007 Bass Tracker 175tx Pro Team with a 25hp optimax mounted. Perfect turn key setup for the price. If my kids stay into it I'll surely upgrade big on the next one. And if they don't, I'll probably upgrade even higher.

I guide river salmon fishing trips form a custom built 24' aluminum flatbottom river boat with a jet tunnel and a 140 horse power Suzuki with tiller steering and a jet pump. This boat features 6 dry seat boxes for gear storage, a 5 ' lockable bowdeck, aluminum floorboards, full length rod/tackle trays, and 11' counterballanced oars.

I also guide river salmon fishing trips with a second custom built aluminum flatbottom riverboat -- this one is 22' with a 90/60 horse Yamaha 4 stroke outboard jet with tiller steering. Boat includes same features as my larger boat, but navigates tight turns better and rows easier with 10.5' oars.
