Hi Folks,

I'd been away from fishing for about 20 years when my grand-kids started bugging me about fishing. I pulled out the spinning rods and got them going. Then I found my fly rods and before I knew it I was hooked again. Bought a fishing yak last year and a float tube a few weeks ago. I fished out of a Buck's Bag in the early 80s but gave it away to a nephew with a lot of desire but not much money. The new tube is a Fish Cat 4 and my first trip out was two days ago. Loved it but still have to work out how to do a quicker turn. Smile
I've been browsing the website and am already thinking about mod ideas based on what other members have done. Thanks in advance for all the good ideas other members have posted.

I spend winters in South Padre Island and will also look at using a tube there.

Great forum and I just know I'll be spending a lot of time reading up on what others have done.

Thanks for all the nice welcomes! And what a great resource this forum is...you just have to love the internet.

As I mentioned in my intro post, I winter on the gulf coast in Texas where there is spectacular flats fishing in Laguna Madre and good surf fishing right in front of the condo. I was going to drag down my yak this winter but am now looking at just buying a float tube down there. For some reason, I had never considered a float tube for saltwater.

Quick question, I can't post pictures since my maximum picture size is 0 Mgs. Is there a minimum post requirement for pictures?

Thanks,
Harry
