    Yeah, I'll be running it Friday morning. Going up to the big bend area, and will have a 4 wheeler in my boat. Wanted to make sure I wont have to dodge large ice chunks with a boat loaded down like this.

    I run a 1652 with 50 jet so water depth is not an issue for me on the sue. If you know the river however there should be no issue.

    I'm thinking that stretch is pretty slim on water right about now. I'm going to go the long way until the water starts coming up.

    Had a great first run of the year,didn't see to many boats on the water.A couple guys with mud motors .The water didn't have a ton of debris in it.The wind was blowing a bit but what a nice sunny day for a boat ride.

    We ran up to our property yesterday about a mile above Yentna Station. We had a great trip conditions were excellent. A little off subject but we'd left a 1984 Honda Big Red three wheeler out there last August all I'd done was throw a cover over it. It started with the push of the electric start button. I was amazed.
