Inshore and nearshore saltwater fishing has grown more popular than ever, and boatbuilders have created a plethora of models designed for this angling genre. Whether you cast to the mangroves for snook, intercept tarpon in the pass, pop for stripers in the bay or present baits to redfish in the surf, there’s an inshore/nearshore center console to meet your needs. Here, to help you pick out your next fishing boat, is a small sample of the top models that have earned the respect of serious anglers. (Boats are listed alphabetically by brand.)
