The Best Used Cars to Buy If You're a Fisherman

What do anglers look for, specifically, in their vehicles? Lots of room, plenty of cargo space, and sometimes, the ability to handle rough terrain. Some fishermen also want the option of towing a boat. With that in mind, we have identified five used vehicles that we think would suit various types of fishermen, from the weekend warrior to the serious angler. They are the Land Rover Discovery, Honda CR-V, Subaru Outback, Acura RDX and Ford F-150.

  • Land Rover Discovery: This is definitely for the serious fisherman or other outdoor enthusiast. If you want to take friends along, you’ll be able to take seven of them to your favorite fishing hole. Cargo capacity is plentiful, so you’ll have more than enough space for all your gear. The powerful V6 3-liter engine and eight-speed transmission deliver plenty of power while being surprisingly easy on fuel – you can expect about 37 mpg.

  • Honda CR-V: This SUV isn’t huge, but you’ll still find that you have more than enough room for your gear. It drives nicely and has a well-appointed interior, so you’ll be comfortable on even long drives. The rear view camera is also a great feature when backing into tight spots.

  • Subaru Outback: The Outback is available in both gas and diesel, and seats five. If you fold down the backrest, you will have more than enough room for poles, tackle boxes, and of course, your catch. Anglers who like to tread a bit off the beaten path will be happy knowing that the four-wheel drive Outback is known for being powerful enough to get drivers out of places where they perhaps should not have ventured.

  • Acura RDX: The Acura RDX is essentially a scaled-up version of the CR-V. It has numerous console storage bins that can hold all your fishing gear, lunch, change of clothes, or whatever else you need for your fishing trip, and the seats fold down to provide even more space.

  • Ford F-150: If lake fishing is your passion, you need a rig that will haul your boat. The F-150 offers 11,000 pounds of towing capacity – more than enough to get you out on the water. It is available in 4x4, so if things get a little muddy, you don’t have to worry. The interior is comfortable enough for a road trip, too.
