Welcome to the board of floaters, go for the Fishcat 4 or the ODC 420 Creekcompany, infact if you want the ODC 420 I can get you one just P.M. me and I will talk with you about it. There are alot of good float tubes out there those are the ones I like and are most widly used.
You are going to love fishing like this. Thumbs Up

There is a tube called the Prowler that is steep in price but is really nice. And has a high weight capacity let me see if I can find it and post a link for you.
But the cumberland is a very nice set up talk to ed5000x that is what he has right now. I will be right back.

That thing is awsome what are the diffrence's between the two? What kind of things do you look for when you bought your's

Price is the factor for me, my last tube was off of craigslist $75. But the more money you put into your first tube the happer you will be that is what most people will say.
The diffenece between the two tubes size I thing the prowler is bigger and may weight alittle more. There is also a Camel back in the Prowler and the cumberland comes with to cup holders silent I guess that is not a big deal though. Both are great from what I have heard but one is cheeper then the other, good luck bro. fact is you cannot go wrong with either one of those.

I leaned on one side grabbed my boy and picked him up high enough to put him back into his tube my weight is 205 not counting gear and his weight is 120 lbs it did a great job of supporting that situation (foregive my spelling ) i have a lot of great things too about my cumberland but i also have a big horn it is very stable and very comfortable it a recliner is roomy and lot of storage and i am a tacklewhore so i love it

here a picture of my big horn and me lol

I used to fish there. I used to live in Sunland so I went to the dam a lot. Also Castaic was my fishing hole too. Have you ever fished anything close to the dam - if you know what I mean? Very Happy

When we were younger we used to go over the dam and fish we also use to fish the various ponds along wentworth. I had more luck there than Castaic.
