So, in case you’ve ever wondered what happens when you forget to trim up your kicker before you run a 3-inch deep riffle at 30 mph…here ya go!
Deep in the groggy depths of salmon seasons past, I’ve done this maybe once a year. Until yesterday, I’ve been lucky enough to never hit anything pulling this bone-head maneuver.
Well, my streak obviously came to an end…and so did the pristine condition of my prop. For the year and a half that I’ve owned that motor, it didn’t have so much of a scratch. Oh well, I guess if you run enough shallow rivers, you’re gonna break something eventually :(
