FAQ: Fishing and Buying a Fishing Boat

The best time to go fishing can vary depending on the type of fishing and location. Generally, early morning, late morning to afternoon, and afternoon to dusk are good times to fish.

Some important questions to ask when buying a fishing boat include whether the boat layout suits your fishing style, whether the boat can accommodate putting on shallow-water anchors if you fish in shallow water, and what the maintenance, comfort, and safety features of the boat are.

  1. Trout: worms, minnows, and artificial lures
  2. Carp: corn, bread, and boilies
  3. Bluefish: live bait such as eels, bunker, and mackerel
  4. Sunfish: worms, crickets, and small jigs
  5. Bass: plastic worms, spinnerbaits, and crankbaits

The average cost of a fishing boat with common features varies depending on the size, make, and model of the boat. A new, fully equipped fishing boat in the 16 to 20-foot range with an outboard motor, trailer, and standard features will cost between $18,000 and $45,000 on average. A brand new, mid-range fishing boat will cost between $20,000 and $50,000, while a good used fishing boat should cost between $18,000 and $35,000.
