Small fishing boats are great for their versatility and functionality. They're easy to transport and fun to spend the day in. Another benefit of small fishing boats is the way you can customize them. Here are some options for small fishing boats.
Fishing rod holders are an obviously desirable amenity for small fishing boats. Having built-in fishing rod holders can help you keep your hands free, though you can also get some that attach to your fishing boat.
You can get a fishfinder that sends high-frequency sound waves underwater to locate fish. Another good option for the serious fisherman is a bait well. This is a tank which allows you to keep bait alive and therefore more enticing to the fish you're seeking. You should also think about getting a live well, which will keep your catch alive and fresh. This can be especially beneficial when you're fishing in a tournament.
A trolling motor can help you move your boat quietly into fishing areas. Trolling motors can range from the very basic to more serious motors with various speeds and lights. Some trolling motors even come with remote controls so that you can operate them from anywhere on the boat.
If comfort is high on your list of priorities, consider getting a misting system. This can keep the people on your fishing boat cool by sending a spray of cool mist on board. You could also put a shade, sometimes known as an anchor shade on your boat to protect you from the sun. Look for one with built-in UV protection to add extra sun safety to your fishing trip.
Inflatable seats also add comfort to your fishing trip and are easy to just toss into your gear pouch, which is another great thing to have with you. A boarding ladder makes it easy to get on and off the boat.
These are just some of the accessories you can add to your small fishing boat. There are options for just about any need you have; if you think of it, somebody probably sells it.
