I'm thinking about the alumacraft 1546 waterfowler but not sure how well that hull design will hinder the Longtail motor. Might be better to get an all well mud hull flat bottom.

Should have yelled profanity at one boater who waked me when I had a 195lb passenger. We took on water from that one. Scary!
That "lake" at daybreak is actually very dangerous from the zero visibility, morons will still be out there running on plane not seeing their hand in front of their face.

At any rate, still caught some fish and had fun exploring the lake on my boat. I'm sure the locals were glad that cowboy wearing the hat left on that go kart boat of his!

My boat landed more fish than off the dock or our other two boats.

We had to work for our fish this year.

I caught the biggest of the weekend a 16" brown trout of my group. Someone caught a 20lb'er that weekend on the lake. FYI, I was not boating and drinking.
We were at Taneycomo for four days, and just returned to FL last night.
Had a great time, and hammered the browns & rainbows.

We fished from the Tablerock dam all the way down to Roark Creek, using a Swamp Runner powered by a GX270.
Yes, when the water is flowing, the current can make the going a lot slower for boats turning small propellers.

Spring has sprung in the Ozarks. The dogwoods are in full bloom.

The rainbows were healthy with beautiful coloring.

Thanks for the invite Brian.
We prefer the middle of nowhere, so the Eleven Point River sounds awesome.
We've talked about fishing the Current River just north of there at Montauk.
If we ever decide to go, I'll let you know.
