I started float tube fishing last spring in hopes of someday moving up to a boat of somekind. My step father turned me on to it. He has done it for years and years. Last year I was nervous, scared and didn't know quite how to approach this technique....
That was last year....last saturday I hooked a five pounder that set the year off with a bang. Yesterday I was fishing my favorite spot in Northwest Texas and hooked a 10 pounder...At 6:30 this morning I was back at my favorite spot that boats just cant get to and hooked a 8 pounder and a 7 pounder, not to mention losing a few hogs that wrapped my braided line around a log or two.... Every place I fish, I can approach it quitely and flip or drop right down. The water is very stained here and stayes that way through most of the year.
So I have to depend on placing the bait in the right spot quitely....Its almost impossible to do that in any other kind of craft. I use side flippers to manuver and they work well. It is the most fun I have ever had fishing and I just don't think I want a boat anymore. Just watch the wind and don't get caught in the water when you don't need to be and you will have a great time...
