Aluminum Fishing Boat
Rugged and versatile, an aluminum fishing boat is ideal for anglers who want to work the shallows, navigate through rock- and stump-strewn waters, or launch from a primitive or remote landing.
Small aluminum fishing boats can be transported in the bed of a pick-up truck or even on the roof rack of an automobile, while the largest models are designed to head out on big water and are equipped with a long list of angling features.
Aluminum fishing boats come in three basic styles: jon boats, Mod-V (or Modified-Vee), and Deep-V. Jon Boats have a very flat bottom and a squared-off or blunt bow and are especially popular for use on rivers and smaller lakes because they can operate in shallow water and get on plane quickly. Mod-V style boats also have low sides like a jon boat but have a sharper hull shape at the bow to better cut through choppy water, and the hull bottom may not be absolutely flat. A Deep-V aluminum fishing boat has a very traditional profile, with a bow that comes to a point, more vee shape to the bottom, and higher sides, all of which make these boats better suited to use on choppy water because the ride will be smoother and drier.
