Default How to fish in a boat

I got a boat last weekend and I have no idea where to go and what to use.
I am hoping that now that I have a boat I can catch more and bigger fish.
I'd like to know where to go and what to use to catch reds,kings,cobia,trout,Spanish,grouper,ect. If you have any suggestions for me I'd be happy to know thx for the help.

step1: buy fishing gear
step2: fill boat with fuel
step3: put boat in ocean
step4: let someone who knows what they are doing drive the boat
step5: take someone with you who knows a thing or two and help pay for gas/bait
step6: get a really good job to keep paying for broken crap on boat
step7: try and enjoy boat in between repairs and times when you cant afford gas

*key note: bouy's mark a channel, you do not have to run your boat as close as you can get it to the bouy to stay in the slot.

Contact one of the local guides-- Capt.'s Wes Rozier,Brant Preacher, John Rivers, etc. and see if they would possibly take you out in your boat on a guided trip.

Open a cold one, and spend an hour using the "search" function. You will learn a ton.

To answer your subect "How to fish in a boat" I submit the following:

Fill the boat with water, stock it full of fish. Pull up a chair, put some bait on a hook, which is on something called fishing line, attached to a fishing pole.

Place the baited hook in the boat full of water, and wait, for a bite. Maybe drink a beer while doing so.

Now in reality, based upon what you meant, and not what you posted. It appears you have aquirred your first boat. If so, take a boating safty course, learn how to be safe.

Then as far as "Catching Fish From a Boat" there are many ways. Inside Salt water, Inside fresh water, near shore and off shore.

The best way to learn is get the fishing equipment for inside, and ride around throwing bait, as learned from searching here on this forum.

When you have mastered, try some near shore fishing in the GOM. Like the Mass.

Then find a buddy boat, and learn offshore.

But most of all, be safe and have fun!!!
