    The pram type that you posted would work for your purpose. You might also take a look at the Pdracer hull, which is designed for sailing, but would work under oars as well. It is stable because it is square, the full width of 4 feet from bow to stern. Build it with the side flotation chambers for extra security.

    Build it with exterior grade 1/4" plywood and paint it with porch paint. No need to go full perfectionist on a boat that you want to use regularly for fishing. If you like it, build another with epoxy and glass sheathing, which will be heavier but will last at least twice as long.
