Tubbs just hasn't had the true Caney experience. He isn't old enough or experienced enough. Just hope we don't have to go try and recover him.

I'm not encouraging reckless boating. I've done that. I'm saying it's stupid to act like the things going to eat you. In a 12 foot jon boat? no...but in a 16 foot aluminum or a fiberglass boat like my own? Sure you can get hurt, but that can happen on any water at any time. You should awlays be alert and have flotation on hand. I'm not encouraging reckless endangerment, but to completely ignore a wonderful fishery due to unjustifed FEAR, not respect, is folly.

Bob,
I fish for more than brown trout. I fish muskies, bass, cats, and am learning walleye and smallies soon. And no offense, but the larger trout are not so stupid. By larger, I am not talking about the 20-25" dinks I'm getting. I'm talking about the fish that I'm beginning to learn and study that go up into the 15-30 pound range, and believe me, I'm doing my homework.

And I'm quite familiar with the nature of an inlet. I watched idiots nearly swamp their boat every night I went to Sebastien Inlet. Oh, and while at Sebastien inlet, I routinely took snook up to 42" and reds to 50". On artificials. And yes, I have pics.

Gil,
Isn't this what weighted lines and streamers are for?

I wasn't questioning the stability of the drift boat. It was my understanding the drift boat was designed for areas containing white water shallow runs where upstream travel was impossible, and the navigational abilities of them to orient around midstream structures and take a beating shone through. I've been in a drift boat on several occasions. I found it cramped, whispy in handling and unnecessary. I think they're great as a bath tub to float down stream in, but in rivers like the Caney where even on low water there are few areas that could even be stretched in the imagination to justify using one over a powered craft...although I saw a guy one time with a 5 hp mounted on the back, and wanted to applaud. My issue with it was more...on this heavy a water, that anchor does you know good in the front, and if all you have is oars, unless you're very experienced, or ridiculously strong, you have to predict your trajectory about a half mile above the take out, and in alot of cases, if you miss it under this current and you're having to stroke back up? hehe...g'luck. I'd rather put a few chips in a prop than have to call a pickup in carthage.

True. It just wears me out, and I don't enjoy it that much. On two or more generators, it's a real pain trying to get your streamer down. I hate to say this because it's the point you've made about fly fishing many times, but in the case of really heavy water, it's just not that effective for me. I'd rather wait for the water to go down a bit.

Two thoughts:

1. Tubs just called 25-inch browns "dinks." Oh god, make it stop.

2. Captain Hook, did you really just say, "Our tailwaters are not dangerous as long as people don't do anything stupid"? On the Caney, your "as long as" is about a fifteen second time span.

This is because you have to count it down five seconds, and then you don't have a free hand to hold your rod.

BD,
Show me another species in freshwater angling that is considered a trophy when it reaches, in weight, a size 20% of its maximum growth potential. Browns can reach 30-40 pounds, and routinely get 20 pounds, yet somehow, a 6-7 pound fish is a trophy?...

...yeah, I'd go so far to say that 20" browns ARE dinks, 24-25" are nice, but still just nicer dinks.
