I already marked that shoal years ago with mine! Holy Cow the first time down that river (after buying the boat used) my lead anchor fell off in the parking lot ( a poor knot by the previous owner). I had to crash into the left bank below Peach Orchard and get a huge rock and tie it own for an anchor. Then I nailed that shoal above Offut to break in the bottom. I think I knocked some gelcoat out of one of the chines!
The midge fishing was great yesterday. Your buddy up front must be a UT fan with that BIG ORANGE indicator!
I'd rather push a Clacka than row a Hyde! Kinda like asking a Chevy guy to drive a Ford. Are those Hydes still got foam in the bottom so when you get a leak and the bottom freezes it expands and blows out? LOL
I am a great admirer of spectator sports, especially on television; it keeps the riffraff off the trout streams.
