Well done. Gman not only talks the talk but walks the walk. I got caught in some bigguns at Rayburn one time. We launched at Twin Dykes and were fishing in 5 fingers. Fortunately the wind was outta the south but it was still a rough ride. My P11 done pretty good.

Good info. Does it work the same without a jackplate?

Also when they get too tall to run directly into them or with them, remember you can 45° them and zig zag them. When you approach a wave faster than you should (fixing to spear) remember you can turn hard to run off in the trough.

Also for your consideration, Matt Allen of Tactical Bassin explains running rough water pretty well. I’m still fairly new at driving a boat, and this video helped me a bunch and made me overall more confident in driving a boat when it gets rough.

Well, he admits that in the video. The basics and principles of operating the boat in rough(er) water that he presents I thought were good.

Good information. What about when you don't have the option to zig zag, like on Fork where you have to run the boat lane and watch out for other boats. I only have a year of experience operating a boat. I have a ZX200 and while I'm pretty confident it can handle 3-4 footers at Fork I also tend to be overly cautious and sometimes don't run to my spots I like.
