So I mention in the 'boats, motors, trailers' section I am looking to upgrade form my leaky riveted 16 ft boat to something a bit sturdier. I do a ton of my fishing solo and I really like fishing in a tiller boat for ease of control when you have a fish on. I previously had a 18.5 double eagle and I found it very difficult to manage boat control when I hooked up. So, my dilemma is, should I go to a 16-17 ft console boat or stay with a tiller? How do you guys, when fishing solo, deal with boat control when a fish is on? This may sound like a total rookie question but any feedback would be much appreciated, thanks a ton!
