I am wanting a pontoon boat for my birthday this year and I am hoping that those who have experience with them could give me some advice on what to look for in a pontoon boat and what is need or not needed. I plan on using it in lakes for trout and in some of the river around me in South Lewis County for trout and stealhead. I am right around 300# and plan on using oars and eventually may even put on an electric motor. This is my first boat. I used a pontoon last summer up on Olollie and really liked it and so now would like one for myself.
