Re: Different subcategories of Fishing boats!!
I think aluminum canoes have gone the way of the great white buffalo
They're noisy and can be hot in the sunshine
Good for 'trippin' maybe, but there are other materials that make for a better fishing craft
I have a fiberglass canoe and a plastic, sit-in kayak myself
I like the canoe for fishing freshwater ponds 'cuz there's room to kick back and I can stand to cast if I like.
I use the kayak primarily in saltwater. I like its stability and speed
Kayaks are just plain fun to use and often I'll paddle around more than fish.
