What Is a Sportfisher?

Sportfishers are boats ready for the biggest fishing adventures an owner throws their way. Capable of traveling to deep ocean waters, these offshore “battlewagons” are equipped with towers (making it easier to spot fish), outriggers (long poles that extend fishing line away from the boat), cavernous fish lockers, aerated livewells (for live bait or live catches) and freezers (for frozen bait or ice), fighting chairs in the main deck area, or “cockpit”, and an abundance of rodholders. The goal? To pursue, catch and boat big-game fish like tuna, sailfish and marlin. discover boating
