Michael_Jake was kind enough to take me out to the Missouri River (Columbia Bottoms) for a night trip. Thanks Mike, you showed me a great time. Folks, I'm here to tell those who don't know Mike, we have a hidden jewel here on the BOC. He's been around awhile, and I've read most if not all his posts. I sure had no idea that was as gifted and knowledgeable as he is. This guy KNOWS catfishing. He is the real thing! It isn't so much what he says, it's what he doesn't say that speaks the loudest. As he goes through the motions of setting up, it's obvious that he has tons of experience. He told me he always is looking for new ideas. I just wish I knew even a fraction of what he does. He's also got that SeaArk set up perfect. If I could think of anything about it that I would change, it would only be that throttle. Ya look at it, the boat jumps 5 ft. lol Embarrassed me when I tried to drive the boat. It doesn't have a "low" speed. LOL Any movement on the throttle sends everyone grabbing for something to hang on to. LOL Seriously, I'm hard to please when it comes to boats, and that was the only thing I would change. NOT BAD!. If any of you want somebody who knows the Missouri River around the Confluence, like the back of his hand, Michael is your man. Thanks again, Mike. I really enjoyed the trip and especially your company.
