Best Activities You Can Do With a Bass Boat

Thousands of bass boaters take their vessels on recreational fishing trips. Whether they cruise a nearby lake, or explore secluded fishing spots on a miles-long river, a bass boat is ideal for both purposes.

Professional anglers fish for a living, entering high-level tournaments across the country. Although they maintain top-of-the-line boats and equipment, their sponsors often cover much of the cost.

Bass boats’ streamlined hull shape and flat bottom enable them to achieve speeds of over 100mph. Some bass boat owners have capitalized on their boat’s performance, becoming active in the bass boat racing circuit.

Finally, some successful bass boaters have carved out bass boat excursion businesses. They’ll likely need a U.S. Coast Guard Captain’s License to show their paying passengers the region’s top fishing spots.

What types of waters are best for Bass Boats?

Bass boaters generally prefer relatively calm lakes and rivers without much chop (or wave action). From a practical standpoint, calmer conditions mean fewer disturbances for those crafty fish.

Bass boats have a very low profile, a flat bottom, and a shallow draft. Their engines often permit them to travel at high speeds. Although bass boats glide over the water instead of plowing through it, flying up a choppy river could be uncomfortable. Hitting a log or other obstacle at high speed could result in boat damage and/or passenger injuries.

Some bass boats can be used in freshwater and saltwater, and these boats will be clearly labeled. Other bass boats should only be used in freshwater. These vessels’ outboard engines and other components could be damaged by saltwater intrusion. When renting a bass boat through Boatsetter, ask the owner what types of waters the boat can traverse.

What is a Bass Boat?

A bass boat is a purpose-designed boat intended specifically for bass fishing trips. These boats range from 16 to 26 feet in length, and most models carry 2 or 3 passengers. Larger models may hold up to 5 anglers.

Manufacturers make bass boats for recreational and/or tournament use. Tournament models have beefier construction, sophisticated electronics, and other high-end features.

Although these sleek, low-profile boats serve their purpose, they carry relatively few passengers and are unsuitable for other types of fishing. In addition, even the recreational models are quite expensive. However, dedicated bass fishing fans rarely worry about these issues.
