This past year was a rough one in terms of river grass, but other then that I have been pleased with the set up. During fishing season I have run everything from as far down river as River Bend Park and all the way up to Lander. For duck hunting we spend most of our time between Penny field and Seneca. I have buddy who runs a small 14" jon boat with a surface drive that works pretty well. The one challenge is it does not maneuver very well, so you need to plan ahead when picking your lines through the rocks. Best of luck.

I originally wanted an outboard until I looked off the bridges around here and saw all the dang rocks. Mud motors bounce of rocks without too much difficulty, especially longtails.
