    Right kind of powered boat for float trippin' in MO?

    When I was on the Lower Buffalo a few weeks ago, we saw several Jon boats with 9.9HP motors. As Al said, they were about useless in the fast riffles. A couple of them tried to do it and made all kinds of god aweful sounds as the prop whacked on the rocks.

    You can get a bed extender to haul a 14’ boat in a short bed...maybe a tad longer depending on weight and weight distribution.

    Has anyone here used this rig ever???

    I have seen that on Facebook. Let us know how it works!

    I pick the second response every time regardless of the question.

    I didn’t think Party Cove was even that popular anymore, especially with all the new, fancy bars with big pools and beaches. Plus, that no wake zone to get to the Glaize is a drag. I remeber 3-5 years ago, it would be crazy. Seems like the last 2 years, you go by on a holiday weekend, and there is like 30-50 boats. That first big cove out of the no wake zone has more traffic.

    Buffalo River - Rush to White River (lots of pics)

    It is a pretty amazing place. Would love to go back during the week and probably have the place to ourselves. Not to say that it was crowded as we only saw 5 other groups in three days.

    I guess I will have to try to snag a pair somewhere before they are all gone. In your experience, does the size match your regular shoes or is it bigger/smaller?

    Looks like they are discontinued.

    Powerbait and Trout worm deal

    They are crapping where they eat. First they stopped selling “assault weapons” then they hired anti-gun lobbiest. They have the right to do both things, but many see it as hypocritical for a company to profit off selling firearms, ammo, and accessories while simultaneously lobbying against the laws that make it possible to own them. Now back to the topic 👍

    Kayak takeout

    Following. I know there are places that rent kayaks. Call them up. They’ll either know a public ramp or a private ramp that you can pay a small fee to use.
  15. Floated Saturday to Monday from Rush to Riley Station on the White River. Definitely the most beautiful stretch of river I have seen. There was a picture worthy bluff or mountain rising around virtually every corner. The fishing was a bit hit or miss. My friend and I each landed a 15" smallie as our largest. I caught a few in the 13-14ish" range and lost a couple other 15". It always amazes me the difference between a 13-14" and 15" smallmouth. It is like a completely different animal. Day two we kept 6 rock bass and blue gill for one of the most satisfying fish fries in memory. I saw more 18-20" bass than I can remember seeing elsewhere, but they were usually under the boat or on a bed, and I did not want to harass them. The last four miles on day three was in the rain but by far the best fishing. We completed that stretch in about 2 to 2.5 hours and probably caught 25-30 fish between the two of us. It was excellent, bucket list trip. I made the link to my Facebook album public so hopefully this works (let me know if not): Buffalo River May 2018
