Default Float tube.

Well right now I think one is my only way financially to get off the shore. Any input /suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Have spent roughly thirty years of my life fishing from a float tube. Now that I am retired, not actively float tubing as much as I used too. Anyway, if you could be more specific on what you need as far as input/suggestions, I will do my best to help you out with information.

I was just wondering if there were any other options. But if you did it for that long I'm willing to bet that's a good route to go. I should be looking for one in the next few days.

It is a great route to go. Float tubes can be easily inflated or deflated, stored easily, packed in to lakes (off the main road), and, launched and fished in many areas where you can't get a boat. Good luck in your search for a method to get off shoreline.

Gets you off the bank and that is good enough reason for me. Just can't be out in bad wind. With the late openings and early closures of most of our boat ramps due to inspections, float tubes are money in the fall and early spring.

I kinda disagree with rip lip on the wind thing. I always feel stable in mine regardless of weather conditions. The only suggestions from me would be to not eat an overabundance of food the night before that could, shall we say, make an uncomfortable stomach the next day. Don't drink too much coffee the day of...unless you're real close to shore. Last, but not least(and this is serious) even though I said I always feel stable wear a pfd. I have a fishing vest pfd that has the CO2 cartridge just in case of trouble.

Like Boon said..I'd run..not walk to pick up dropshots tube if he still has it..Won't find a better tube for that price anywhere.

It's great getting off the shore and out on the lake..
