Yeah I thought running Big, Little, and Black Cypress, all the way from Jefferson to Caddo, wanted something that would slide off them trees during those OH SHIT moments!

UPDATE: Hunting back of Lake O' Pines(stumps everywhere), either the owl shit on the bottom of hull, the flatness, the longitude ribs, 3/16 bottom, or all the above-- sliding right off the stumps, very few slide to stern and hit the prop. Loving it, but the sandy mud is hell on a prop! Have yet to hang up on one.
