No single boat design, except perhaps the center console, has had as much impact on our fishing as the bay boat. A logical hybrid of the inshore skiff, built to handle protected shallow waters, and the open ocean-going runabout designed for reef and offshore fishing, the bay boat has given anglers a broader choice of places and ways to fish than ever before.
From bays to reefs, this truly is the most versatile fishing boat on the water. Safe, comfortable, affordable, and compact, with nearly endless potential for customization to fit any fisherman’s preferences, the bay boat comes as close to a no-compromise fishing platform as we’ve ever seen.
Here then is a look at 16 of the top Bay Boats you’ll see on the water. There truly is something here for every angler.
