Jalama, I've only used my pontoon boat in lakes and ponds. I've been wanting to use it in a smallmouth creek I fish occasionally but just haven't gotten around to it yet due to a recent interest I've developed in sight fishing for carp. And Robert, thanks for all the concern about my love life negatively impacting my fly-fishing. I'm still hoping for the best of both worlds but will count on you and OkieBass to keep me on track.
