Which Boat Is Best for Fishing in Florida

Gerry’s Marina has been meeting Central Florida’s boating needs for over 30 years, so we know boats. We can’t promise you will bring the right bait, have enough gas or remember to pack your cooler with mile-high sandwiches and refreshing beverages, but we CAN put you in a boat that will put you on fish!

Okay, so which boat is best for fishing in Florida? That depends on you…

Stumpknocker come in models from flat bottom three- to six-inch draft boats to semi-Vs with an eight-inch deadrise. Want a boat that is excellent for “skinny water” fishing? Gerry’s can put you in a Stumpnocker, which is fisherman tested and approved for easy navigation through the shallow coastal flats or virtually any hard to reach river fishing holes.

Thinking more of a boat with yacht-caliber features, but easy on your wallet? Sounds impossible, but it’s not. Sportsman maintains a stellar reputation for premium boats with the best ride and price. These boats were designed using the latest 3D computer technology and offer some of the finest craftsmanship in the industry.

Prefer family fun or like taking lots of friends when you fish? Pontoons are an excellent choice for those who need a larger capacity. They hold 10-15 people, so they are excellent for family excursions and inviting lots of friends. Pontoons are also easy to fish because you can fish from anywhere in the boat, and there is room for stowing a ton of gear. Built with safety in mind, they are steadier and more stable than traditional fishing boats and have high rails for additional safety. That flat hull is also perfect for pulling up on some great beaches!
