Buyers Guide to Fishing Boats

At A Glance

Fishing boats are a great resource for anglers. They allow you to get out into the water, which expands your potential cast-off options greatly. They can also facilitate a more relaxing and comfortable fishing trip. Below we cover key considerations to make when shopping for a fishing boat. When you are ready to check out fishing boats for sale, visit Germaine Marine. We have one location in American Fork, Utah. We also have a location in Mesa, Arizona, and serve those throughout Arizona.

Consider Where You'll Use Your Boat

A great place to start is thinking about where you want to use your fishing boat. There are certain specs and features that can make a fishing boat better suited for different types of waters.

If you hope to cruise around in shallow waters, you’ll need a fishing boat that can handle the many obstacles hidden in the water (such as fallen tree trunks or boulders). Look for a model with a flat bottom. This way, your fishing boat’s bottom won’t scrape along the obstacles and get damaged by debris.

If you hope to frequent deeper waters, you will need a fishing boat able to withstand the choppy and rough waters. Bay boats offer deep bottoms and high sides, which help facilitate a smooth riding experience. Offshore boats come in large sizes to promote stability. You’ll also want to ensure your fishing boat is made from sturdy materials to withstand the corrosion from the salty sea air and waters.

Consider the Accessories

Fishing boats can be upgraded with a range of accessories to make your time on the water even better. Use a rod holder to keep your pole securely in place and free up your hands to eat some lunch, assist your child in casting, or even set up multiple rods. Use a depth gauge to get readings on the depth of the water and help guide you to the depth your intended fish is found. Of course, these are only a few of the many possible features you can get on a fishing boat. Think about what features will best suit your unique needs then look for models to match.
