With the warmer weather comes some good fishin' I met Casey on the lake , he already had a bunch of fish when I got out there and Jack went out too in caseys canoe
The crappies were on the bite, I had good action on the "float and fly" rig, a small float one foot above a 1/80th hair jig. I sweetened it with a couple of red spikes to tempt the occasional big sunfish that would also be in the shallow dark bottomed bays looking for bugs. I caught more fish than I could count. nice crappies and bluegills
Lots of pictures here:

Nice pics MTP. Good to see other tube/pontoon fans as well.

And great illustrations in the shore guide. I picked that up for myself a few years ago.

I went out for the maiden voyage for my semi new fishcat, I have dubbed the great pumpkin, cuz it is so big round and orange.
Andy SBF came out to try some tube fishin, i let him use my ol cat, which held him up great despite being over the size limit!
We got our sunfish on t.h.e. Jig tipped with gulp waxies, i also got fish on a JRs black and chartruse stub grub. The tiny bass and shiners followed me all around. I couldn't keep em off my baits, but we got some nice sunfish just about everywhere we tried. the crappies were in hiding or wouldn't bite, I got a couple.
All in all a fun day. I had fun just having my camers ready for some
funny video of Andys first tubing adventure, but he did pretty good for a tube wookie!
All the pics here:

I don't think there's any way, other than flippers, to move a float tube man. I use an Outcast FishCat Cougar. It's a pontoon boat, so that has oars. I never got around to picking up flippers, but I plan to for this season. You get blown around pretty easily by the wind and flippers will really help you stay in one spot.

Logan, you can use a paddle or oars I spose, but kick fins are the best so you can have both hands free for catchin fish!
