prop boat in little su?
I have tried to search for previous threads--not too computer savvy. Can you fish rivers like the little su in a Koffler style boat with a prop?
Thanks in advance!!!
Koffler makes several styles of boats, from small drift boats to large ocean cruisers, so... I'm not sure what you mean by a "Koffler style" boat. But, I've taken a small propped zodiak downstream of Burma landing on the Little Su a few times. Water can get thin for the first 1/4 mile or so, but it's pretty good after that. Upstream is another story... way too shallow for a prop.

I ran my Scott Hudson Bay on the Little Sue Friday, 20 HP SS. Downstream is fine
during King season gets shallow during Silver season. Running upstream can get expensive in props. If you run rivers and props best to have some kind of prop protector.
