From experience I can tell you don't go over it stern first, aka. backwards just for the sake of being funny. Having done that: Yes, I thought it was funny.... but: There was a ton of water in the boat after the first wave that the stern spears into and continues underwater. All tackle and contents of the boat will be floating in about 8-10 inches of high quality cold Clinch River H2O. This makes a drift boat handle very poorly: unresponsive to the oars since it isn't floating too good any more and very unstable. You better have some large arms to keep things upright and have two other fools in the boat bailing water and trying to clean up the mess you just caused.

Moral of the story is be very careful or don't do it at all, no trout is worth losing all your stuff or worse getting hurt/killed.
