If you love to go freshwater fishing in rivers, streams, and lakes, a bass boat is the boat for you. Bass boats typically have two motors, an outboard motor with up to 300 horsepower some easily reaching speeds over sixty mph and a trolling motor for very slow maneuvering within an angler’s fishing area. The deck area has a large fishing platform.
Most bass boats are javelin-shaped with a narrowed pad at the transom allowing the boats to plane on the top of the water. Bass boats can be constructed from aluminum or fiberglass. Aluminum is lighter weight and is less expensive. However, if you are looking for more space, larger motor capacity, or better handling, a fiberglass bass boat may be your preference.
Modern bass boat styles have swiveling chairs for easy turning as a fish on the line runs from one side of the boat to the other underneath and back again. Most models have electronics for fish finding, rod holders, and live fish wells for storing your catch, and a deck-casting platform in the bow and stern as well.
Bass boats are designed for two fishermen. Some seat up to four anglers comfortably and range in size from 16’ to 25’ with prices ranging from several thousand dollars to over $40,000. You can usually put your bass boat on a trailer for easy transport to and from various rivers, streams, lakes or other waterways.
