Freshwater Fishing Boats

If you are interested in freshwater fishing, one of the first things to do is decide which type of freshwater fishing boat to use. There are a variety of freshwater fishing boats, tailored to fit the many needs of freshwater fishers. The type of fishing boat you use will depend on the recreational activity you plan to partake in, the body of water you wish to fish in, and the climactic conditions of the area in which you will be freshwater fishing.

The following types of freshwater fishing boats are widely used by today’s freshwater fishers:

All-purpose Fishing Boats

Commonly nicknamed the “SUV” of freshwater fishing boats, All-purpose Fishing Boats are perfect for fishers who wish to pursue a variety of freshwater fish. In fact, these freshwater fishing boats also work well in saltwater, making them an excellent choice for anglers living near the coast who enjoy both freshwater and saltwater fishing.


Bowriders are very popular in the sporting boat community, but they also work well as freshwater fishing boats. They are perfect for the recreational fisher who also enjoys water skiing and swimming.


One of the simpler and more affordable freshwater fishing boats, dinghies are usually used during camping trips, or on weekend trips to the cabin. Dinghies are best when used in small lakes and comfortably fit groups of 2-5 people. They work well for the freshwater fisher who wishes to travel between lakes because they are light enough to fit on top of a small car.

Jon Boats

The Jon Boat is meant for the hardcore fisher who is concerned more with landing a good catch than taking part in other recreational activities. They are very simple, easily maintained, durable, and extremely inexpensive.

Sport Fishing Boats

Completely opposite of the Jon Boat, sport fishing boats have all the bells and whistles to make fishing fun, easy, and even luxurious.

With the many varieties of freshwater fishing boats, there is sure to be one to fit any angler’s needs.
