I know a lot of catmen have bought better, more comfortable boats, but as time goes on, week in and week out, I still see more jon boats catching cats and feeding families more than any other boat on the river.

The humble jon boat: workhorse of the catfish fleet.

That's what is so great about catfishing. You don't need a glitter boat.
The best catfish boat is one you never have to wash. Pull up on the bank, and open the drain plug and throw a bucket of water into it is about all it needs just to keep the flies away.


Just one more cast!

Willie I fish hard for eaters in my war eagle until it gets to hot for me.I also d-horn all my cats before they go into the box.And all those fin tips would be hard to get out of carpet.

Willie,
Google Willie Boats.. There not very humble but they are all metal and pretty cool. Very popular in the north west

Wish I'd have kept count of all the flatbottom' I've owned! Certainly a versitle design! Somehow, I keep going back to them every few years! Flounder boats, bowfishing boats, catfish boats.... The flatbottom is the unspoken hero and workhorse! I like um unless it's mid Winter and the lakes are angry! thumb


Never let truth stand in the way of a good fish story!

My boat goes in garage and my New truck stays out. No insurance, No maintenance, and a gallon of gas goes all day.
