    who wants to do a float n camp weekend on our flathead river? we can camp on an island and have about 20 miles to float/motor. small boats needed because the river is very very shallow and rocky. we run a 12ft with a lil 4 horse on it, but still have to walk it through the shallow spots at normal levels.

    In the process of getting a 12 footer with a 5hp for the White would love to floater her the wabash for some flatheads and camping. Beer and a fish sandwich allowed during the camping?

    "mercy sakes, looks like we got us a convoy"! lol

    june or july is what im thinking. that way if we all enjoy this we can do it again in sept. also, from winter scouting in the past, i feel most of the population migrates into this section of river well into the season. i want everyone to get themselves a picture with at least a 20.:wink:

    BC64,yes same river as videos.

    Greg, yes its too early still. i dont like to waist my time till the waters at 60+.


    this will have to be a drop and pick-up kind of deal. this meaning we will have to drive back to retrieve the trucks the river is way too shallow and rocky to be motoring up stream any distance. we can manage this really easy though with hands to lift the boats out at a very nice bridge access(we can drive to the rivers edge to take out!). also this will be very primitive so bring food, drinks,cooking stuff, trash bags, and TP. it would be nice to have everyone ready to launch early Friday night for the most fishing time. ill PM those that are coming with a location closer to the date we set, so you can look it over on google earth if you want. i will tell you it in the ft wayne indiana area so you can make a the decision to travel. more info to come as this progresses.



    pepper, you would be a very welcome addition with your medical knowledge. lol

    I would like to go. I just went Fri night up river and camped on a sandbar. Took the Lund out. Froze our @rse off. Fishing was slow. Nothing but rock bass. I don't think it would do the river your planning. I would take my canoe. We usually do 3 or 4 float/camp trips a year.
