All-Purpose Fishing Boats

These small fishing boats, common in freshwater and saltwater, are intended for those who fish for just about everything. An all-purpose fishing boat will have a higher freeboard (sits higher in the water) than bass boats and have an easier time in rough water when pursuing  largemouth bass, muskie and pike. The driver's area is simple; some small fishing boats even use a  steer-by-tiller layout with spaces for fishing gear and several bench or pedestal-style seats. Livewells, rod lockers, a bow (front) or transom (aft or rear motor mounting position) trolling motor and powerful outboard power are the rule.
