Why are people using drift boats on the Caney?


Because they're very comfortable to fish out of, most likely.

Also, some people have fun paddling every once in a while. I've fished lakes out of a canoe even though I have a bass boat. Sometimes it's more about spending a laid back day outside instead of running and gunning it.

Well, I didn't lose the whole rod, only 3/4ths of it. That's not much use to anybody but me, since I've got the 4th part.

You said it.

By the way, the Sage warranty covers breakage but not "loss." However, I bought the rod at a local shop, Fly South, and I'm a very regular customer there - if I can't get the lost pieces back, the guys there are going to talk to the Sage repair shop and see if they can help me get the pieces replaced at some cost much lower than the price of a whole new rod.

Obviously, it's up to Sage and not a sure thing, but I suuure couldn't have gotten that kind of help from Cabelas...

Tubbs - I have a jon boat and love it, but it doesn't work for me on the Caney unless they are generating.

As you know, I hate fishing during generation and prefer to motor somewhere, anchor, get out and wade in low water. When they aren't releasing water, the jonboats weigh too much and ride too deep to motor back upstream back to take-out.

Granted, my Riverhawk isn't the shallowest runner in the world, but except for a few spots, I can mostly run upriver at no generation. Jon boats (at least those without jets) do a poor job of running upriver in ankle deep water. Great boats - just not fit for shallow running.

I think a drift boat is great to fish out of and for shallow drifting, but they aren't generally meant to motor around much. Generally speaking, you have to put in and take out at different areas, and I'm not willing to do that.

Im going to go out on a limb here and guess they like those boats because the image they convey, the comfort level, and the versatility to use on just about any river in the state. All things considered Id say the most important thing is that it separates them for loud mouthed rude inconsiderate know it all people like yourself. I realize that for your style of fishing with bobbers, plastic minnows made in China, worms, corn and two zebco 202 rods, a 12 jon with a trolling motor works just fine. Someday you might actually want to take off those training wheels and try a form of fishing that is actually challenging both mentally and physically.

Next time buy a Loomis. If you are holding the final 1/4, they will send you another entire rod in 24 hours.

Sage is overrated...big time IMO

G.Loomis's warranty policy is pretty much the same as Sage's. Their warranty return form for the Xpeditor Service says "we must receive the entire rod back."

http://www.gloomis.com/publish/content/g...0Form%20(2).pdf

I imagine they might cut customers some slack, just like I'm hoping Sage does.

I have 3 G. Loomis rods, so I clearly don't have anything against them. I really like my Sage for a streamer rod though. Before I bought it, I looked at the Loomis CrossCurrent but it was a little faster than what I wanted. Eventually I'll probably get a 10wt for stripers and it will probably be a CrossCurrent. But for trout streamers (and carp fishing in the summer), I like the FLi better.

I fished and guided on the Caney for years with a freakin jon boat and a 9.8 Merc. Screw that noise. I drug that sucker all I wanted. I'll take my little toot-toot and run in 3" of water evebn with david J in the back of it, it doesn't drag and it holds the 9.8 quite well.

This is what a jon boat is good for.
