Ok - so I don't plan on destroying anything - but I certainly plan on making a lot of sore lips with this bad boy!

Never tried float tubing before - but saw a good deal on craigslist and picked it up! Not exactly a bass tracker, but will be awesome to get to some new spots. I plan on putting this thing in action very soon! ;D

Right on. I love it when you can carry something to a lake and get on the water.

Did you get some kickers or are you at the mercy of the wind? :D :D
It came with some fins - just the ones the tube was made with, they'll have to work for now.

I've heard getting real swimming fins works much better ???

Any suggestions on waders? Neoprene with the "socks" the way to go with a float tube? rubber with the boots? or does it matter?

Neo's during the hot summer months will eat you up. Breathables with long johns work good. Hodgeman is what I use. My neo's are for fly fishin rivers. Camo neo's big time heavy weight for duck huntin. Breathers are light weight. Get a good pair of boots.

Concur--Breathable stocking foot waders and decent wading boots. I recommend your boots be a size larger than your shoe size.

Thanks for your input

I don't have a ton of money to invest since, but what do you think about this pair?

Hey now! I was a lifeguard at one point, I think I can handle this floatation device! You on the other hand might need some water wings! Haha :D

This may be a stupid question (but feels like the right place to ask) - when you wear the waders with boots, do you just put the fins on top of the boots?
