Skeeter redesigned the storage layout in the new ZX250.

Anglers have plenty of choices when it comes to buying a new boat. We took a deep dive into latest bass boats, V-hulls and other fishing crafts in our series on the best new fishing boats for 2018.

Our writers and editors looked at features, specifications, handling and fishability on eight different models.

We also found many things we liked and a few we'd change.
