Why People Like the Missouri River’s “Land of Giants”

We’ll usually see at least one in this bracket each day when fishing the Missouri River’s “Land of Giants” section of the Missouri River below Hauser Dam. I caught this one today, in the new old jet boat’s maiden voyage.

It’s pretty crowded right now, but higher water with runoff as well as the end of the spawn after mid-May will thin things out quite a bit.

Interested? The jet boat is out of commision for a week with a minor issue (a hatch lid broke and needs to be re-riveted), but we’ll be back in battery in a bit over a week. Still plenty of available dates in May and June for this water. A whole lot less thereafter.
