Good morning!

Im Mike from northern Colorado.Just found this forum the other day and had to join. I got my first float tube 10 years ago and just wore it out at the end of last season. Some float tube reviews is what brought me to the site but after lurking for a bit i see you guys have really outfitted your tubes to make fishing more fun. So i signed up and will be looking for a new tube and how to outfit it to suit my fishing style. Looking forward to contributing and learning from you all.

Welcome Mike!

I've been tubing less than a year, so I've only ever had one tube, an Outcast Super Fat Cat, but I can say that it's definitely a quality tube. The inflatable seat and back are very comfortable and I believe the inflatable seat helps keep a big guy like me out of the water.

Classic Accessories has some great tubes and I am sure others here with more experience will chime in.

Once again, welcome to the Forum and I'm looking forward to catch reports with pictures from beautiful Colorado!

Welcome aboard Mike.

I recently did a comparison post between a few different tubes that I currently own and of some rod racks that I constructed.
Check it out when you have the time.

I am personally leaning toward my Cumberland Classic Accessories float tube over my Out Cast Fish Cat Deluxe 4 float tube. FYI ... I've had twice as many sessions on the OCFCD4 float tube.
The Cumberland float tube is more comfortable to me on the long sessions, it has more available storage and it keeps me higher; out of the water, and dryer than the OCFCD4 float tube.

I weigh-in at a grizzly 188 lbs.
My "sit-downer" gets wet at times while on the OCFCD4 float tube.
This really matters if you are only wearing SoCal board-shorts like me year round.  Thumbs Up

I purchased my Cumberland Classic's Accessories from "Cover Bonanza" .... they offer a very pleasant customer service and they also offer discounts to our "US Veterans"!  Ooh Rah!!  salute

SP Dan     <"))><

PS ... Sorry to tell ya Mike .... there is no known cure for your OCFD Sir. lol

There is no cure! I found that the hard way haha. i build my own rods and pour, paint, and tie my jigs if im not fishing im doing something fishing related.

The old tube was a u boat 2000 from creek company. It was a nice boat but this time i will be getting something that sits me up higher out of the water. So far the cumberland is looking really nice! This time around i think i will put a fish finder and rod holder on it im really wanting to use it for some of the larger lakes. With the old boat i always stuck to the smaller bodies of water.

As far as fishing goes here in Colorado everyone seems to love trout. Not me i catch alot of them but normally am after panfish and walleye.

For what it's worth... I've made a couple rod holders from ABS, but I switched to a Castmate Systems rod holder and I love it. You can set it up and leave it, or you can reconfigure it easily any time you like. It's also much lighter in weight than my pipe holders.

They show it as a side mount, and I used mine that way for a while, but you can also configure it to sit on top of your side tube and that works better for me.

I have three rod holders, a tackle table and a camera mount. I use velcro on the tackle table to attach a small Plano organizer that holds all my baits. Very handy. And being able to move my rods easily into any position has definitely helped me out in tight spaces.

Welcome to the forum PanfishinOutlaw!
I found this place the same way; looking for a new tube.
There is a lot of great info here on tubes. I weigh 200 and my butt does get wet on the Cumberland at times, however it is out of the water for the most part. Excessive waves, wind , or moving cause this. Classic Accessories does make a tube called the Marshland for hunting they say, it is the same size as the Cumberland but in camo, and a little more expensive

Welcome to the forum. Yeah, I don't weigh much, so, sometimes I just grab one of those old timey orange youth PFD's and a couple of pool noodles and GO!
