It might have been luck. It might have been the boat, a Duckworth 235 Navigator. It could have been the secret spot on the Columbia River which they had to secure at 4AM. Fact is, it was teamwork. The crew of Alex Brauer, Jerry Spiess, Trey Carskadon, Shy Masters and Dave Haukeli have gone from a rag-tag bunch of anglers to a well-oiled machine. Taking their second 1st place finish in as many years at the 2015 NSIA Spring Fishing Classic, and placing on the podium 4 or the last 6 years, it all comes down to hard work on the water. Rods are rigged to precision. Baits are changed religiously every 20 minutes. When a rod goes off everyone knows their tasks; clear the deck, toss the anchor, get the net and stay out of the way (or Jerry will toss you overboard.) Thank you Duckworth for the finest fishing machine on the water!
Thanks to Duckworth dealer, Precision Marine, in Idaho Falls, ID, we had the opportunity to take a few Ultra Magnums up a remote river to one of the most picturesque spots anywhere in the world. This waterfall is real, and even more stunning than the photos can capture. Any guesses where it might be? You’d need a Duckworth with an inboard jet to get there. Give up? It’s the South Fork of the Salmon River in Northeast Idaho. The falls are named Fall Creek Falls
TWO FEET LONGER. MILES AHEAD.
The facts are clear: The New Duckworth 20 Advantage Outboard provides 28” of freeboard (not 27”), 34” sides (not 31”), 27-gallon fuel capacity (not 24”), a 90” beam (not 85”) and over 72” headroom with top (vs. 70”). Not to mention tops with 1” square aluminum and metal fasteners (instead of the usual round tubes and plastic). Plus a smart new side graphic that shows off your distinctive new angle on boating. It’s more boat for the dollar and more enjoyment per minute.

This is how it all started. Watch this classic Duckworth video created in the early 1980′s by founder Ernie Duckworth and his wife and son. At the time, this was state-of-the-art production, shot on 8mm film and edited together with tape and a razor blade.
The video covers a number of different segments including one early jet boat run all the way to Hells Canyon Dam on the Snake River. The narration is just priceless. Please leave your comments on the YouTube. Enjoy and thanks for watching.
