Default "Fish'Callen" with the new FoxPro

The break of dawn found us pushing off the shore.
No idea what we would find so we brought everything. Rifles, shotguns, spinning poles, casting poles Jigs, minnows, worms, and the FoxPro.
Actually, the bulk of it stays in the boat.
29* light ( under ten-mile wind).
We put 30 some miles on the boat, seems to be charging ok now.
We saw GOBS of Golden eagles and some Bald eagles, there always cool.
We were Fish'callen. Calling for Racoon and fishing.
VERY soon the big spawner walleye will be up here. The pike follow closely. The Catfish should already be here. Drum and red tail suckers are already here.
The fish we got all took white jugs with whitetails, and a dead minnow.

YUP, the carp and suckers did too. Drum are predator's it took the set up too.

No other boats on the river. We stopped at every spot with trees and brush came down to the river and called for Raccoons. We saw lots of 'coon tracks but no little bandits would show their faces.
If they would have I would have tried to dust them with the Stoeger and 1 3/8 oz of #5's. We had the 243 and 22/250 set ready to go if Whiley coyote tried to get a peek at a raccoon fight.

We did not see either.

LET me tell you the two Huge speakers on the FoxPro will fill the river corridor with songs of death, Dang.
We had to start out on very low volume, then we would work, up, just in case there was something in Chouteau county that might be interested.

We have a special draw area( 40 tags are given out) we put in for spring turkey, which is the north side of the river, so a little recon was going on too, no turkeys were seen.

There is some very technical water in that stretch so the boy had to read the river on the fly. As usual, he read it perfectly. The river drops 180 feet in a 20-mile section, it's defiantly not "white water", but it is a horrible stretch to puncture your boat or get knocked out of your boat. Not that there is a GOOD place too.
We went upriver to almost Morony dam the last of five on the Great Falls...
Lewey and Clarky would have loved a few of these mud boats when they came up through here. Gas may have been an issue.
You decide !!!
