Not hardly as wide. It works great on the Duck.I fish Buffalo river too and its smaller than the Duck.
is it a flat bottom? I saw a boat the other day with a 140 horse and the boat was a big and wide flat bottom, he said it would run in 1.5 ft of water with the motor trimmed up and the boat itself draft only 8 inches. Oh and that motor at low speeds was quieter than my little 5 horse \:D

it doesn't get you 25 miles to the gallon though does it? Whatever suits you. I've already gone more than a couple miles today... Fishing for rockfish at the moment, but to say I've caught fish I have already caught two nice carp today, do you want the pics of them? \:\)
Na,dont need to see any pics of carp.Sometimes in life,comfort and usability are more important than how cheap you can get by with.Ive fished in some storms at Dale Hollow,catching fish,and was very glad I was in a Bass Boat,a small john boat would have been very unpleasant.

Dont know about mileage,never seen a boat with an odometer on it,but it does very well.
there's one thing my boat would not do well with, a bad storm... still it serves its purpose well and doesn't cost me much to operate.
Well,why not cut to the chase,fish from the bank,make home made cane poles,and dig worms on site?Glad you like your little boat,and I like mine.

I have done all of the above except the cane poles.... one time I caught a load of worms and put one on the hook, sight casted to and caught a 6 lb buffalo... of course you probably don't even consider that a real fish, because it's not an almighty bass....

No its not a flat bottom. It is a Delta Pad with a 6 degree deadrise. It also has lifting/turning strakes and a reverse chine. It drafts 7-8 inches of water and easily runs in 4 inches.

sounds like a beast if it can run that shallow, mine won't do 4 inches of water but if I'm that shallow I just get out and drag the boat. Lol

I grew up wading and floating small rivers and creeks. The Harpeth, Swan, Piney, Buffalo and Lick creek. I have done my share of dragging. I'm no good at it anymore. I prefer to drive to my spots now. Its easier on a tired back.

they don't interest me much either, because they don't bite much and hardly fight at all. I've seen uglier fish too. But it is rewarding to have a buffalo bite your bait or lure because it usually takes a lot of effort. I pretty much ignore them except for the fly south carp tourney.

hey if you ever are not having luck with the smallies and felt like wasting your time catching a carp I would gladly show you how... They aint pretty but they are very smart fish and fight like a freight train
