McSruff, I don't have any pics yet but its pretty stock and its one of the earlier models. 

It's a U shape. I'm sure I will find it much better than the old ones we used 40 years ago.

Bill, Allen Morgan is from Sapulpa, and there was another guy, John W----- something.... Allen will know.
And Greg McWilliams, the Most Photogenic Angler on Earth isn't far from there.
Jen Nayfly, the same.

There's also a good Facebook group, "Fly Fish Oklahoma." You should check them out.

I'm trading a big float toon for Cumberland this season. It fits in my car - always important.

Looking forward to your pics. If you don't mind, let's see that tube of yours.

Slip Sinker pointed me to this group. I am just getting back into float tube fishing. I bought a used River Creek float tube from a guy in out Fly Fishing club. I live in the Tulsa, Okla. area and we have just a few more weeks before the small bodies of water will be warming up. 

I've been trying poppers and bugs so I'm ready. Any Tulsa area guys around in this group?

I've got an XT with a few modifications you can fit a battery and medium size cooler quite nicely. The only caveat would be weight distribution. With a size 24 battery and a full cooler your going to be tail heavy. I did some mods on mine and largely solved the problem, but it's radical rethought. Heres the link to ftff you can take a look at what I did http://floattubeforum.do-talk.com/t4559-xt-almost-ready

Have you visited
1. Float Tube Fishing Forum
http://floattubeforum.do-talk.com/forum

Or

2. Big Fish Tackle

http://www.bigfishtackle.com/forum/Float_Tube_Fishing_C66/Float_Tub...

Both have forums dedicated to toon and tube users and many of them are doing just what you are asking.

Are any of you using a Classic Accessories Colorado XT? My ODC-420L is worse enough for wear that I'm planning to replace it this year and am thinking of going up to a pontoon.

For anyone who has one, may I ask a few questions about the XT?

- Will both a battery box and an ice chest fit on the rear deck? If so, how large of an ice chest?

- Anything you wish was different about it? If so, what?

- I'd like to use my MinnKota 30 on it. How well does it track with a trolling motor, and how hard is it to reach around to the tiller, or does the extension handle on the motor come forward far enough that this isn't an issue?

- I have no plans of fishing saltwater, but you never know. Is it approved for saltwater use, or FW only?


- Anything else I should know :-)

Thanks,

Jonathan

Jeff,
Right now my problem is where to put the thing. It would be ridiculous to break it down each time and deflate, so I have to clear a spot for it.
Dick is right, though, I may just use it in the yard as a lounge chair.

Jeff don't worry about McScruff hurting the gill population he'll be out there bobbing around sleeping the thing is so roomy and comfortable like mine can't help but sneak in a nap.

Dam I am jealous when are you going to break that bad boy in, the gills wont stand a chance.
