I recently purchased a used youth 243 H&R with a redhead 3x9x40 scope with Hornday 100gr bullets. The best group I can get with this setup is 2.5inch group at 100yrds. Is this the best I should except? I am thinking try different bullets or another scope.

The bass in the blind river area are not bitting because the water is high and muddy due to all the rain. I usually catch the mullet with a cast net while they are swimming on top in a school.

A comment titled: motor in response to a report titled: Suzuki 140hp

I am not looking to win any races, just get around with a good load in the boat( 4-wheeler and some gear), with top speed around 45mph without a load. The 140 Suzuki sounds like it may underpower the boat. Would 150hp Optimax do better. I found a used Opti. Thanks again for the info

We went down there and the only thing we managed to get to bite was a Jack Carvell 3 to 4 feet long. The fight lasted 3hrs and 25 min. before he broke off. At least we had this action
