I've still got a couple Caney ones I saved from last year.
It is not the killing ...; it is the contest of skill and cunning. The true hunter counts his achievement in proportion to the effort involved and the fairness of the sport.

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.

The anchor is on the back of the boat \:\)

Other then that you are right, and the biggest benefit to a drift boat even on a river like the Caney is that it can travel easily through shallow water and can easily be anchored in heavy high flows with little or no risk.

I am not that familiar with the Caney, and you have to use the best craft for the situation. Here on the Clinch, Holston, and smallmouth rivers, and john boat is worthless. Unless you like dragging or patching holes in aluminum often.

I guess I better get rid of my jon boat since its worthless on the Clinch then.

I've never hit bottom on the Clinch in my jon boat and I fish that river at least 50 times a year. My prop looks brand spankin new and so does my skeg.

Kinda sad but I did have to chuckle. This line reminded me of a joke we use tell as kids growing in the real rural South. I'm ashamed of it now.

Hey... the gar are beginning to show themselves in good numbers.

Constipation has ruined many a good day. Not as many as stupidity, though.
