Building a Performance Shallow Water Boat

Chances are there’s some outstanding shallow water fishing to be had near you, but this can spell danger for hulls and lower units. But this doesn’t mean you can’t tackle skinny waters from a boat. Elite Series pro Ott DeFoe walks us through his tricked out jon boat. He’s modified the hull and electrical systems to support running shallow water, while powering useful equipment like timed aeration, dual shallow water anchors and even a jack plate. Top if off with functional boat accessories, and you can transform any aluminum boat into a well equipped fishing rig.
