If I put a stick and some cloth on my fishing boat, will that count as a sail boat?

Sure if your raise the motor. However, I'd recommend you add lee boards to limit sideways drift, a rudder or steering oar to help control direction, and set up and attach a traveler and an outhaul on the clew of your "cloth", and set it up so that the Center of Effort is approximately aligned with the Center of Balance on your boat. Otherwise you'd only be able to go downwind.

On the other hand, it's been said that one of the most effective methods of trolling (for fish) is to have a boat that's:

(1) not too noisy,
(2) not too fast,
(3) doesn't go too far in a straight line.

Doesn't that sound like a sailboat?
