Skinny water sledding

Touching a few nerves on this.  Regardless, keep the comments coming - opinion mining is what we do.

that's what happens when you have a few kokanees and feel keen to give 'er in the jetboat.

Sweet!

I want a jetboat so I can fuck up large amounts of spawning and rearing habitat too!

You think that jet boat is doing more "damage" that run off or flooding? Look at that river bed, it's moved around more than your mom. Get real.

I want to see the boat!!

Baller? why?

May 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCodyE

Asshole. I hate jet boats.

May 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSuckapunch

You need to troll some treble hooks behind that thing...

May 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMoss

Don't think it is doing more damage than the anual runoff, but If these yahoos came by me while I was having some ME time on the water, I would rig my 6Wt. and a heavy # 4 streamer for them when they went by again. It's only illegal to snag trout.

And yes, it is all about ME.

"For Sale" lightly used.... new paint and low hours on rebuilt pump.

May 24, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterskanky

If that had been Ron Hayes boat they would be dead men!

May 24, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterzingerr

Really....Reallly...

You clearly have more time and money than common sence....and I have found that common sence aint all that common.

Drive that shit past me and you will hear the familiar sound of ...tink...tink tink tink as my 44 unloads on your ass.

Life is about choices. If this is the way you want to access the resources then alrightly then lets just hange er up and call it a day and quit pretending like any us us actually give a squirt of piss about anything but a grip and grin. Cuz....son you only care about you....and that my friend is what will be the ultimate down fall of ALL things you hold dear.

Enjor your skinny water sled ride to getting to that LAST spawing fish on her bed for that grip and grin for your wall. ooooh how awesome is that...I caught the last fish on the planet...here it is...but check the go pro from the ride there. You my friend are a horses ass.

You'd seriously shoot someone for driving a boat somewhere they shouldn't? Wow, I don't think we have to worry about the fish disappearing...I'm more scared of attitudes like that.

May 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKimchifly

Ya runoff always sucks up fry into impellers and pushes them onto the bank as well... Nice defense of a jet you tools

May 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJ

Let me be clear, I don't know the guys in the boat. But I am pretty damn sure that by the sound and the the look of the bow of the boat it's a tomcat by outlaw marine. The entire bottom of the boat is covered in UHMW plastic. Great boat, somewhere between a 4x4 and a ferrari, slippery as anything going over rocks.
The guys driving it are idiots though, no need to run skinny water like that.

May 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKJK

Damn. Those guys are so Canadian!!

May 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLogan

lol sign me up for that ride!!! everyone chill out... really unload a 45? snag a person... dudes we trample spawning beds with our feet all the time? hook nates too deep ..... i mean we do our part to hurt things no matter how careful we are... anybody know what system these guys are on?? i dont but lets assume their are fish spawing there , in the beginning of the video he takes a sharp left turn into a small off spert of a bigger river ..... low ass water summer.... if i was a fish i would stay in the nigger river, hey if anything he's helping clear up flows... atleast hes not a jack ass like most guys and leaving a shit load of garbage in my hole.

I was hoping to see twisted wreckage and two bodies floating face down at the end of this.

May 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRusty

looks like fun to me!

May 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCalg Ninja

id like to see video of running it back downstream.....I dont understand what the big deal is. Lotsa internet tough guys out there on this one. Seems more pathetic than a couple of guys running a jet sled up some skinny water...

May 25, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterflatmatt

KJK: the boat is a Fire fish sport jet
...and for whoever asked, it's the Red Deer River in Alberta.

May 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRiverRunsBetween

Does anyone spell check what they write? Jesus!!! Seriously, maybe just a quick once-over before you click "create post". There is a difference between "nigger river" and bigger river....I'm just saying.
