I am a native South Dakotan and have fished the Missouri River System since the early 1970'S. In those days, we fished out of 16 foot open boats with small outboards. You had to launch where the fish were to be successful, as your daily range on the lake was not very far.
Those days have changed!
Today I fish in a top of the line new Lund boat, which is powered by 300 hp outboard and fully equipped with sonar, two way radios, electric/gas trolling motors, and GPS. This boat is designed to get you to the fish quickly and keep you on the fish!
With this type of equipment, any place on the river is within your reach!
