Whether it is a hobby or sport, fishing can be fun especially when out with the family or angling friends. Fresh water fishing has become more accessible for those living near fresh water bodies or for those visiting regions with lakes and rivers. It is a recreational experience not just limited to the experts but also to be enjoyed by beginners as well, with the right guide and tools including suitable small boats. Fishing allows anglers to appreciate nature and even support nature conservation through their fishing jaunts.
For a satisfying and comfortable fishing trip, a suitable fishing boat is critical. There are many kinds of boats readily available, ranging from the all-purpose boats, bowriders, dinghies, deckboats, and electric boats to even houseboats for a getaway.
Some of the popular fresh water boats includes the aluminum boats, bass boats and the inflatable boats. All the different kinds of boats have their own merits and unique features. It’s ultimately the fishing enthusiasts’ preferences, budget and the fishing spots that determine the fresh water fishing boats selected.
Aluminum boats are usually small and lightweight as expected of the popular metal. These fishing boats have proven to be durable especially for freshwater fishing. Their simply crafted design which feature riveted aluminum hulls with bench seats make them versatile to be operated in shallow waters, inlets and coves, among other fish-friendly spots that are usually not accessible by other kinds of boats; measuring from 8 feet up to 24 feet in length and usually taking up to 8 people and being trailer able make these fishing boats popular with both beginning and seasoned anglers. Usually powered by outboard engines, the aluminum fishing boats offer two steering options- tiller and remote.
Bass boats are another popular type of boat especially in tournaments, but they are also commonly used for fishing by seasoned fishing enthusiasts. These fishing boats have low and sleek profiles though the tournament style models can stretch up to 18 feet long with up to 250 horsepower. The boats used for casual angling to relax with a few friends or another family member can be smaller in size and engine power. Being purpose built to get to the bass quickly; these have bigger outbound engines and storage space to keep the live catch and other fishing tools. It is common to find raised casting decks or platforms in the bow of the boat or even in the stern area. Bass fishing boats can be made from fiberglass or aluminum, giving owners more options.
Easy to store and transport, the compact design of the inflatable boats can belie the power and durability of these popular fresh water fishing boats. These versatile fishing boats can be used for motor sports, scuba diving and both fresh and saltwater fishing trips. The inflatable catamaran styled ones can also be good enough for white water rafting as well. Their versatility and durability is a big attraction among the fresh water fishing hobbyists.
With these and many other kinds of boats, fishing boats come in various designs and specifications. Hobbyists and serious anglers can easily take their pick according to their needs and their favorite angling spots. BOLA TANGKAS

Many of us had the opportunity to launch small rockets made from soda bottles filled with water and compressed air. Using this very simple principle and with some rainwater, I have reached 261 km/h (162.2 mph) on a homemade trike, while accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62.15 mph) in 0.551 second (the average acceleration during the first 852 milliseconds, which was the elapsed time needed to cover the first 60 feet (18.288 meters), was 50.3868 metres per second squared or 5.138 g).
