Default Boat Experiences

To be honest, I've only ever fished from the shore - never on a boat. I see people out on boats on occasion, but I can never tell if they're having more, less, or the same success as me. What is the draw of being on a boat? Do you catch more or bigger fish?

I guess it depends on the season and the place where you are fishing. I has been the same for me on the shore and in a boat.

I believe there are many advantages of fishing on boat. At least, you can fish deep banks and reach the areas the wading anglers cannot do. Also, you can cast freely as no branch would obstructs your casting.

Part of the draw of a boat is being able to access parts of a lake that us landlocked fishermen cannot access. You can also access deeper waters which is where the larger trout are most likely to be located.

A friend of mine has a boat and it's great to go fishing with him. The great thing about being in the middle of a lake is that you seldom have to worry about a snag. He has a fish finder so that makes fishing fun, too.
