          Looks like you had a great day for boating. How far up and downstream from the bridge could you go? Brian what were your impressions of the high skew? Wish I could have been able to join you guys today.

            about a mile down stream there's a hefty ice jamb...passable, but we decided against it...

            we only ran up stream about a mile or so...

            so total river covered today was only a couple miles....so we had to run it a few times... ...Brian decided to kill some time by getting stuck just so we wouldn't have a short day...he's very thoughtful like that...

                  Looks like you guys had fun! Whereabouts did you guys launch from? I'm thinking of trying to make a run out there tomorrow afternoon if everything goes well.

                    Regarding the jamb: I could swear you would be able to hear me yell "TURN OFF THE CAMERA".
                    T you gave me so many good pointers today I NEEDED to know how a seasoned professional uses a come along I also wanted to try out the wheel kit. Two birds, one stone!
                    The high skew rocks! world of difference as far as the hole shot. I did lose some top end, but totally worth it imo.
                    We launched directly under the bridge. there is an ice ledge that was perfect, better get there soon, maybe gone tomorrow!

                        Looks like you guys had a great time. It is better to burn that fuel than have it sitting in the tank! I drove by 20 mile today and the launch was clear. One truck and trailer parked there.

                          I saw the guys at 20 mile pull out and they said it is pretty shallow and they had a heck of a time getting the boat back out of the water at low tide. Looks doable but there is an ice ledge (18"-24") just under the surface They had a 16' jon and only went up a a mile or two, still too much ice. 20 mile still needs more time IMHO.

                            Looked like fun. I wish I could've been there, yet glad I wasn't there pushing on a 2000lbs boat.
