River Fishing Boats From Scout

River Fishing

River Fishing

River fishing brings a unique variety of excitement, seclusion, and beauty that is different from many other forms of fishing. While offshore saltwater fishing has massive trophies, and lake fishing has the undeniable appeal of a summer vacation, there’s something about the unpredictable nature of moving water that brings an unexpected level of interest. Somehow, river fishing feels more primitive, more remote, and more wild. But like all forms of fishing, river fishing demands the right boat. River fishing boats must be something nimble, reliable, and comfortable in order to reach the best fishing locations.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A RIVER FISHING BOAT

River fishing, like intertidal fishing, requires a boat that has a shallow draft for reaching specific fishing destinations. Ask any hardened river fisherman and they will tell you that the river will change from year to year; what was a deep pocket last season could be a shallow sandbar the next. This unpredictability, along with trees, branches, and other obstructions, means you need a shallow-draft boat for river fishing.

This sleek, comfortable boat can handle lakes and bays, but it’s also at home in rivers across the country.

It can also be enhanced with features like a poling platform, trim tabs, flush-mount rod holders, and a Bimini top. With a draft of only ten inches, this boat maintains excellence while cruising through the river.

High-End Fishing Boats From Scout: What We Do Differently

High-End Fishing Boats

High-End Fishing Boats

The people at Scout Boats are truly passionate about creating a world-class boating experience. From initial design to the construction process to customer service, we do things differently, creating high-end fishing boats that are a true joy from the dealership to the water.

IN-HOUSE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Most boat manufacturers start their process by hiring out the development stage. This is especially true for the hulls, as most boat-builders find it more cost-effective and efficient to hire someone to design the hull for them. They can then take the hull, which was built to a size they need, and craft the boat on top of that foundation.

Scout, however, chooses to design all of our boats in-house, including the hulls. We have an advanced research and development team that works to create unique, one-of-a-kind hulls that give the craft better ride quality and performance. We also have different hulls designed for various sizes, giving each size category the performance it deserves.

100% HAND-LAID CONSTRUCTION

One way to build a boat is “chopping.” In this technique, you have an individual with a spray gun that delivers fiberglass into a mold. The sprayer determines the thickness, which leaves the potential for human error. The other technique is to hand lay the fiberglass. Many companies, unfortunately, chop a large portion of their boat, then do a few sections of hand-laid, and call it “hand-laid.”

Many boat companies say their boats are hand-laid, and while this might be true, vessels from Scout Boats are 100% hand-laid, including the hulls, decks, and boxes. This means that the strength-to-weight ratio is superior and there is almost no variation from one to the other.

FINISHING THE DETAILS

Adding the final finishes, such as cleaning and polishing, to the exterior of a boat is important to virtually all boat manufacturers. But Scout once again takes it to a higher level. We don’t just clean the areas you see from the sales floor, we take the time to clean areas like the inside of the hull and live well, areas that you won’t see unless you lift the lid.

ELITE DEALER NETWORK

We are fully aware that to excel as a manufacturer of high end fishing boats, we have to have an elite sales force. While some manufacturers are perfectly happy letting any dealership group sell their boats, we are extremely meticulous about our sales network, which in many ways is the face of our brand.

We put so much pride and effort into every model, so we make sure that all the dealers who sell our boats meet the highest level of service, communication, and reliability. We don’t just focus on creating boats, we make sure you have a world-class buying experience through our outstanding dealer network.

Small Fishing Boats

Looking for a boat that can help you fish in nearshore locations, lakes, rivers, and tributaries? Then check out these small fishing boats for sale from Scout. We have lots of options, so let’s look at a few of the most important aspects of a small fishing boat, as well as the best choices.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A GREAT SMALL FISHING BOAT

With fishing boats, there is a give-and-take for the size. Larger boats, while ideal for offshore fishing, are unable to reach the shallow fishing destinations that are accessible by small fishing boats. Therefore, one of the most important factors you should look for is a shallow draft. The “draft” is essentially boat-speak for how deep the hull goes. A low draft of roughly a foot allows you to cruise over intertidal areas, giving you access to many untouched fishing spots.

Small fishing boats will obviously be limited in terms of interior space, but you still need plenty of fishing features for your adventure. Look for a small fishing boat that has plenty of fishing accessories like a live well, rod holders, and a spacious casting deck on both ends.

Finally, don’t neglect the importance of comfort and convenience. You may only want to catch fish, but you still deserve a boat that keeps everyone comfortable and happy while you travel from the dock to your special fishing location.
