From casting for bass in the backwaters to running offshore to troll for marlin, one of these 21 fishingboat models will help you achieve tight lines.
AA startling bend in the rod coupled with a reel handle that can’t be turned, followed by the whirring song of a fish peeling off line against the drag comprises the quintessential essence of fishing. Add in inky-smooth water as you hurry into the rising sun toward a new day’s angling adventure aboard the boat of your choice and the dream is complete — and the right boat can make it happen. To help you get there, we’ve brought a fleet of fishing boats to your attention in this year’s Boat Buyers Guide. On these pages, you’ll discover boats made from aluminum or fiberglass and models intended for salt or fresh water. Fish on!
