Hey Big Max,
Thank you for sharing your story, photos and that incredible boat. I know that boat! So, I guess I know you too. I'm pretty sure I talked to you and admired your vessel at the shop.
I always wondered what it would be like to fish lower Little River in a boat like yours. That seems to be a perfect Little River boat.
I think the grass you are talking about is milfoil. I may be wrong. I've heard milfoil is coming back on your waters and improving the fishing in a huge way. I wish we had some up here, just not too much of it.
