Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I have had a very simple round boat for about 6 years and it has been great for me, but I think it is time for an upgrade. I am thinking I want a Uboat. Anybody have any good tubes that they would recommend?

Also, I am about 6'6 and 250 so I would like one that can support me. 

Outcast makes a great tube.  If you can, and trasporting one right to the waters edge is easy, a pontoon boat is great.  I have both and both have their place. The tube I use for small water that I have to carry in.  If I can drive to to the waters edge I use the pontoon, you have oars and can also kick.  The pontoon has more room for 3/4 rods, trolling motors or an achor.

Bryce, at 6'6" and 250, I would go something in the higher end, such as the Cumberland like Dick has. If you have the money to spend, how about the Dave Scadden Outlaw/Escape?

If you want to go full size, single full size pontoon is the best. Don't get the one with separate frame and bladder, which can be a pain in the butt for transport. There are pros and cons to each selection for the pontoon, but stay within the realm of practicality.

I'm actually really interested in the Cumberland. My other choice is the outcast super fat cat. The outlaw and escape look like great tubes, but I don't think I could justify spending that much.

Wish I could have got this at this price!!!!! So MANY FLOAT TUBES, so little time!!!!!!!!!!
