Both will work fine in Estero. Its more a question of: Will you be fishing with others(family/friends)? and will you want to fish other areas/fisheries? Flats boats are nice for fishing the flats... and nothing else. Bay boats open up a few more possibilities, but will limit you on particular tides/ shallow areas. If your not strictly sight fishing or fly fishing I would suggest looking at bay boats first. That's what I picked and I live off Estero bay and fish there somewhat regularly. There are days I wish I had a skinny water poling skiff, but those days are few and far between(usually in the winter).
