Just moved here and looking for other jet boat fans and events or hangouts. i run mainly on the river. i dont see any jets around. whats with that?
Looks like i will be out this friday most of the day. i will probably put in at Prescott wi and run to the sand islands in Hudson. maybe go farther north depends, not sure yet. sat and sun still open so we will see.I'm in Mahtomedi. I boat north of stillwater on the river on weekends and weekdays the hole length. That's fun.
rain rain and more rain. no jet fun today. you have got to be kidding. There just cannot be only two of us around hear.
ive been up to castle rock a few times and it was always rough as hell. Is it always like that or was i just unlucky?That sucks man... I live in wisconsin rapids... we were rockin' from the storm too. I don't have a jet boat, but i have a baja 20' outlaw. I run the local lakes and Castle Rock lake...hoping to get over by the Wolf River soon..
I was just up there 2 weekends ago. My cousin who lives in Stacey MN. was married in Roberts at his fil's Farm. We stayed at the Hudson inn and drove over the ST. Croix a few times. It looked to me that would be a great place to boat. I have to say I don't recall seeing so many boats on the roads anyplace else over any given weekend. That whole area up around there is pretty nice to boot.
Let us know next time you plan. maybe we can get a few out. south of prescott is usualy empty and yes north of stillwater is good too.I was hanging out at the Hudson islands last Sunday, and then ran up past Stillwater. I had never been up that way before. Rough from Hudson to Stillwater, then actually flat water for the next 3-4 miles. I was not in the Cougar (v-drive) but in my tournament ski boat, however I will definitely bring the Cougar up that way. Lots of places to make 100+ mph passes with no houses or people to piss off with the noise.
Troy (Apollo), you were right about that strech of the river. Come on, get that motor done! Jocko
Are outboards welcome?
I usaully avoid the river during mid-summer but this time of year I start going out on week nights. I was out last Thursday. Ran from Hudson down to Prescott, didn't have enough gas and all the station had was 89 so I had to turn around and filled up in
Afton, then shot up to Stillwater.
If you guys like to drag UMPBA has drags in Fairmont this weekend.
Some jet boats will be running.
Its a blast, you should try and make it.
