A 12-14 ft jon boat is all you need, an aluminum boat will be easier to find, cheaper, lighter, tougher and have a little less maintenance. If you go with a 12' then you really don't need a trailer. As for a trolling motor, something around 34-40 lbs of thrust will be fine, remember the bigger the motor the faster it kills the battery....
