I bought a 1648 jon with a 50 HP yamaha jet drive. Getting on the Missouri doesn't bother me with this boat, but what about the Mississippi? Everybody I talk to wouldn't be caught dead on that river because they think it is a lot worse than the Missouri. I did notice that most of you have boats ranging from 17-20 foot that you run the rivers with and that's quite a bit longer than mine. What do you all think, yay or nay on the Mississippi fishing?
