1 Hi from Wisconsin on Fri Feb 24, 2017 8:56 am


I found this website through facebook and was pretty excited to see fellow float tubers.  

I have been float tubing since my first round inner tube Bucks Bag tube back around 1985.  Now I have a couple Cumberlands and I love them.  All my tubing these days are in the hundreds of lakes in the state that have no access and some don't even have a name.  They are usually 10-50 acres.  Some may have a house on them.  Some I am sure never see an angler besides me.  It usually involves spotting them on Google Maps and then finding a road that gets you close... then crash through the brush till you find it and slip in the water.  

I have two traditional aluminum boats fully rigged but I have more fun in these float tubes now.  The Cumberlands are so incredibly comfortable.  

I have three teenagers.  If I ask them to go fishing in the boat I may get a luke warm response.  If I say we are taking tubes out to a no-access lake...they are all in!  Its not just fishing, its an adventure.  Plus we nearly always catch some big Bass or Pike in these lakes.  

Thanks for this forum and you will be seeing more from me.

Welcome to the forum Partycrasher. I hope you can share some reports from Wisconsin. Great pics by the way, I am guessing these are not from last weekend.

Where exactly IS Wisconsin, California?

Just kidding....but there are a lot of Californians here!!!

Welcome to the forum, keep in mind: tubes sink counterclockwise in California!!!! Evil or Very Mad

Partycrasher welcome again to the site we are very happy you found us. Sounds like you have a slice of heaven out there wish I was in your area for some tubing adventures. I also wish I had some teenagers that saw tubing the same way, my 3 are very luke warm to the idea of fishing, but that is my problem.
Keep up the great work putting the adventure of fishing in there lives.

Don't want to forget my son either...

Thank you all.  You will certainly see some reports from Wisconsin.  Sooner than later... We have had some unseasonably warm weather and the ice is off Lake Michigan already.  We have already caught some nice Browns and Steelhead off the piers but I would like to slip the tube in the water and see if I could wrestle a 15-20 pound brown in with it this spring.  Our bass season doesn't open till May 6th.  

I was excited to see this site because so much of this type of fishing and fisherman have gone the way of the Kayak now.  I still like the tube!
