This was evident in the early magazines because a large number of the articles had pictures of anglers fishing out of their small aluminum boats – not full-blown bass boats mind you – catching fish. Bass Master Magazine even, at the time, had a column printed in each issue called “Dry Dock Talk” where anglers would write in with new ways and ideas to rig your outfit for bass fishing. Besides “Dry Dock Talk,” there was also a series of articles through the 70s on how to rig a boat for bass fishing – again pertaining to small boats. The interesting thing about all of this, and this was eluded to in the Retro Ads piece Old Boat Ads – Bass Cat by Rick Pierce, is that all the tinkering by do-it-yourselfers is what led to nearly all the advancements in full-up bass boats. With that in mind, I thought you might like to see a snapshot of some old DIYers in action.

They not only helped pave the way for boats of the future but they also showed that with a little thought and desire, they could make a very fishable rig without spending a whole lotta dough.
Where I was raised in Florida, we had plenty of lakes, ponds, large bass and desire, but not much money. But unlike canoe boat that is considered a sport, bass boat is designed for bass fishing in freshwater like lakes, streams and rivers.

If it is foam filled fiberglass and the motors size is not too big for it, it is perfect for your needs and when I say that I mean everything from transom height to cockpit size for your body to easily move from front to back without being too tight when maneuvering around a fishing partner while chasing a fish around the boat.
Champ pushed this downsized trend as a 16′ boat with a 50hp engine (the pros were running 115-150 hp then), and sold for $5,195.

Be sure that you only bid on boats that you can see and physically check out, before committing yourself to a deal. Make sure you have a lifejacket and are aware of any local restrictions on sailing or rowing. While writing that piece it occurred to me how in the early days, especially in the West where there weren’t many bass boats, all that was required to bass fish was a boat, some tackle and a desire to catch bass. Moulded plastic boats can split, especially if they have been scraped along the ground, causing serious scratches that become weak spots.
The reason to me this boat hasn't sold yet is because of the 2 stroke motor but there are many very good boats on the market. In a lot of ways, those were some of the best fishing I have ever experienced as it seemed like it was a simpler and more intimate time of fishing.
There are some good deals out there, just take all claims of "perfection" with a pinch of salt. Buying a 2 stroke is fully your use in ocean as many lakes commit to the two strokes inferior design allowing way too much bypass causing water deterioration. If I were buying another boat I would by it at fishing expo where show specials and last year models are marked way below the normal showroom price. I would also look for a good used boat that has seen limited use but because of the economy owners, possibly out of work are having to sell their pride and joy regretfully.
But I would gladly use a center console on the bass tour and frankly I don't know why more anglers don't.
They (most all boat makers) for some unknown reason put a square or rectangular live well in them and within four hours the live bait have bashed their noses into the walls so many times they are nearly all dead way too soon.
