Ranger Boats are a popular line of bass fishing boats designed primarily for black bass fishing. The company was founded in 1968 by Forrest L. Wood in Flippin, Arkansas. Ranger is generally credited with the introduction of the modern bass boat.[1][third-party source needed]

Ranger is a major sponsor of the Wal-Mart FLW Tour of bass fishing tournaments. The tour is named for F. L. Wood, and its championship event is called the Forrest Wood Cup.

Ranger Boats and all of the brands under Fishing Holdings LLS were acquired by Bass Pro Group in a deal signed in December 2014. The deal included Bass Pro acquiring the Ranger, Triton Boats, and the Stratos Boats brands.[2]
