Boat Fishing

By using a boat or any type of inflatable device, you will have the opportunity to gain access to waters that cannot be reached by wading or fishing from the shoreline. Many anglers prefer boat fishing during the colder months in that they can stay dry and warm. Without the worry of being miserable, their focus remains on the trout, which results in a more successful day of fishing.

While there are definite advantages to using boats, there are also some disadvantages to consider. For example, when you fish from a boat, you are positioning yourself higher in the water than what you really want. That means that you are more visible to the trout.

If you fish in a boat on lakes or rivers that are small, the trout will spook much easier. Since the trout will not have as many places to find shelter, once they are spooked and hidden, they will stay that way for a long time. However, when using the boat on larger body of water, the trout might still be spooked but because they have more area to hide, they do not feel the need to stay hidden for hours as they would on a small body of water.

Therefore, while you could use a boat or inflatable device on smaller lakes and rivers, you will not benefit from this. Your best bet is to only fish from a boat when you plan to fish on larger bodies of water. If you only have access to the smaller lakes and rivers, where you live but want to fish from a boat, use an inflatable boat that helps you sit lower in the water and without a motor, there is no noise.
