all-purpose fishing boats
All-purpose fishing boats are an ideal choice for the angler looking for a versatile boat capable of a wide variety of tasks. All-purpose models typically feature a deeper-V boat bottom, or “hull, and have higher sides for protection compared to their low-slung, bass boat counterparts. They also typically include some type of wind protection, whether in the form of a simple screen atop the steering console or full windshield with a walk-thru to the front of the boat, or “bow”. A steering wheel is typical, but some models may rely on a tiller (manual steering lever) on the outboard engine for control. All the standard fishing amenities are present and accounted for, including oxygenated livewells (to store live bait), rod and tackle storage, rodholders, and often an electric trolling motor (a small, slow-speed motor).
