Well right now I think one is my only way financially to get off the shore. Any input /suggestions? Thanks in advance.
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.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 have never spent much time fishing from one, so not speaking from experience, but the wind would be the one thing I would think could get you in a difficult situation. The wind generally jacks with everything else while fishing, so I'd imagine it would do the same in a float tube. I hate bad wind!!I have never had worries about flipping a float tube in the wind. But waves breaking over the tops of your tube and into your waders can be chilly. It can be a challenge to get back to where you are parked if a stiff off shore wind kicks up. (Like at Antero, Spinney or 11 mile). Good to know where the afternoon wind will come from and park on the other side so you most likely get blown towards your Vehicle rather than the other side of the res. Or stick to coves with some shelter from the wind.
