I think the Snake River cats would bite....the Palouse should be too shallow for them (that time of year).

I hope you jack wagons figure out how to catch fish this time so I don't have to feed you all my fish and win all the prizes and pretty much just kick your ass in everything, well everything besides juicy clams and hot sauce, Rasbo has those figured out.

How big of a boat can you launch and retrieve for this fishery?  I've never fished for cats  but might come over for a long weekend and try it out.  I have a 21' Campion walk around with a suzuki 225 on the back.

You can easily launch boats sizing from a canoe to 45 foot cabin cruisers to whatever else. You'll be fine. The tricky part will be the mud flats but with your 225, hammer down, full throttle and hold on. You'll make it through fine.

My fear is not making the mud flats.  But the boat does 50mph.  I will have to check my schedule and see if i can round up a buddy or two for the trip.
