Several factors must work in our favor. First is sun angle. Because it is October, the sun is just below our latitude (9 degrees south). Visibility will be best in a west to northwesterly direction early in the day and in an east to northeasterly direction in the afternoon. We will have some viewing range directly to the north except for an hour on either side of local apparent noon.
I silently wish it were later in the year. If the sun were lower, its declination further south, I would have a good range of visibility to the north for most of the day—and that is the general direction we will be heading.

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
