Do you love big bluegill?
David let me try to answer your question. I do have a boat and also an 18' pontoon but some of the water I fish boats can't get to especially this year with the drought we have had. Hard enough to launch your boat let alone some of the shallow channels to get to other lakes in the systems. I love my boat and pontoon but now I'm not limited to where I can or can not go.
Great answer, Dick. Upon further reflection, I see many places near me where such a tube might be of some use. Add to that fact the low cost of such kit and one can hardly muster a good excuse for NOT having one.
Even if it only gets used occasionally, the sheer fun it appears to offer makes it worthwhile. And since I have been eyeballing a pair of decent chest waders anyway.....
You know what they say David what floats you boat. I was thinking kayak but with my bad back that's out of the question along with the canoes.
