Above our dam we have a decent runnable stretch of water. Below the dam is getting questionable. When them big jets ground they don't push off the rocks that easy  :D     "Williamsport to Muncy"

I have got blowed off the water 2-3 times this year, with a few other times the wind making it hard loading.
Muddy Creek has a lot of large flat rocks. I been on them. Depending on water level they can be just a few inches below the surface. Since I know a few of them I go through 4-5 MPH. Even at that speed if you slide up on the rock, you will have to get out of the boat to get it off the rocks. I have a 14' jon, and it is hard enough getting it off.

My jet boat is a Crestliner Jon 1648 with 25 hp. I try and be careful running that.
The Tuesday night Lunker league, them guys is beating their boats up. A few of them are thinking about running 12' Jon with a mud motor just to get to a few holes.

I have been getting up at 5:00am and fishing till 10:00 this week. Just some small ones nothing above 12"

I am careful too. Try to take care of my stuff. At least you are catching fish!

I tried a buzzbait yesterday with no luck.  That isn't surprising as they were not hitting anything in the area I tried it.

What size are best for the Susquehanna?

I prefer 1/4 oz. Sometimes they just will not take it.

1/8 or 1/4 is usually what I use.
As of late have been fishing Ned TRD in weed pockets...1/8 ounce.
