Does anyone else run an outboard jet boat on rivers? Here's a video I out together of running the Upper St. Croix in a Lowe Roughneck Deluxe Tiller 2070 with a Yamaha 80 HP outboard.

I owned a 16' tiller jet rig a few years back and learned quite a bit regarding optimum set up and operation.  This is my current rig and I opted for a tunnel hull forward CC, transom pods and drift boat anchor setup. Transducers can be at risk so I added a lift bracket for the transducer. I haven't been doing much due to low water but have been out on the Chip & Wis. As set up this rig will run 4" on water while on plane. I did get stuck on a gravel bar on Saturday but I drifted onto it while fishing the downstream end of a deep (4') hole. Got some gravel in  the foot grate while pushing off. 4 or 5 pieces of gravel in the foot grate upsets the water flow enough to make to motor virtually useless. They also use lots of fuel. Unit came with a typical 6 gal tank which is not near enough. I mounted a nine gal tank under rear deck. On Sat I burned 5.3 gals in 3/4 day fishing a 5 mile stretch of river. I anticipate putting a little 3 gal can in the back as backup. 

Rule #1 if in doubt put the boat on plane

I am going to try new 90hp Mercury jet pump motor on the river I am afraid might being too shallow. Will get back here or at essays agency  and share my experience soon.

My neighbor guides on the Wi river between Merrill and Wausau and runs a jet boat.
