  1. I did a little more searching. Sounds like they only put around 100 golden rainbows in... oh well, lol
  2. Hey folks, you kiddo wants to catch one of the “golden trout” they recently stocked in the white. Any clue where they put em in at?
  3. I’d you wanted to boat up to cedar wood lodge from buffalo city you’d need a couple units running. The shoal is nasty... not as big a deal to come down to that area from upriver at rim shoals. Not sure if they are in business still, but angels retreat is about a half mile up from cedar wood. Maybe try vrbo -several of the houses in the ranchettes (where cedar wood is located) rent there. Expect a $250 per night stay at most of em though.
  4. Thank you so much! We will probably stay at a lodge or two. Spend a little time on one river and then move to another just to get to see more country. I plan on bringing one of my river boats. Not sure if I should bring a big Topwater with a jet motor or a small river boat with a 9.9. Those are all streams I’ve been reading about. Looking like a July trip, so it sounds like we will miss out on the salmon and steelhead ☹️ I would like to find something big though. Browns or rainbows, whatever LOL
  5. Reposted - I put this up on the general trout page also... Howdy folks, looking for a little insight. Thinking about taking the wife on a little trip this July and fishing some in Michigan. Anyone have any advice to offer? Looks like there is a small summer run of steelhead in a few of their rivers, plus brown and rainbow trout. We've fished out west every summer, just thought about trying something a bit different. Any advice you could offer would be awesome.

  7. Took the kids and a few friends up to the river. Holy smokes! Way to much water for the kiddos to bait fish. Managed to catch a few but it was rough. Got to do a little adult fishing in between. Ended up with a nice double with a 23” and a 21 1/2” -the shorter fish was actually heavier. Next fish 100yds down the bank was a 20 1/4” brown lol. Big flows = heavy baits and lots of lost lures. That, and taking all the wives out for a couple hours (so many jigs adorning tree limbs now) means I’m about to send a bunch of money Richard Cross’s way lol.
  8. Had 2 today right at 20”. Nice fish for sure. Still bummed out about the hook pulling out of whatever it was. Nice hook set right on the bottom in a seam about 8’deep, fish shook his head side to side like a big’un will, then sat down on the bottom. When I put some pressure on him he flat out bolted -I thought this is gonna be fun! Then the line went slack ;( He felt BIG! ps: worked our butts off today for 102 fish. Pps: buddy had the lower unit come apart internally in a newer 20 Yamaha 😳😩 gear oil full of metal.
  9. 23” lost a monster today. Hook pulled out 😭
  10. Thank you 😀 it was a good nice one -even if I long armed it a bit, lol.
  11. oh-my-gosh (!!!) it was windy yesterday. Still managed to get on a few fish but wow! Found this one in a little nook...
  12. The general rule for setback is every 3” you get away from the boat you can raise the motor 1” vertically -I think lol. It’s been a while... not sure how that translates on a rig that has as much pronounced rocker as a riverboat. Anyway, a buddy of mine has a topwater (flat bottom with planning boards) with a 20 Yamaha on a hydraulic jack plate. He likes it, but it kinda seems like one more thing to mess with to me. I’ve jacked around with it and the line between gaining performance and getting to high out of the water is pretty slim. I’d save your money. Side note: He runs with the motor clamped to the jack plate -not enough room to bolt it down. This led to a pretty scary scenario last year where the motor almost went into the river! He had a death grip on the thing and narrowly avoided fetching it out of the state park hole lol.
  13. Big, sneaky rocks in the middle of the river can cause you trouble with either motor. However, I’ve ran up lots of shallow gravel flats that are just over ankle deep with my 60” bottom Topwater pushed by a 60/40 merc jet -can’t do that with the prop motor. That being said, I just set up a second boat to run the buffalo. 42”bottom with a bunch of rocker pushed by a 9.8 tohatsu...
  14. Not super familiar with the supremes, but if the boat has rocket built into it I’d run the prop motor. If it is totally flat run the jet. This is based on the 3 river boats I’ve ran over the last 20yrs.
