And, unlike a kayak, they take up almost no room in a closet and just a small patch of space in the trunk.

Not to mention the safety aspect of floating, not falling into a hole, not shuffling up a stingray, and presenting a much bigger profile to drunk boaters flying by.

Just a suggestion.

Edit: And I would add... If you fish from a float tube with waders, there is no exposure to the nasty water that can cause Vibrio.
we don't keep 3 or 4 float tubes on the boat.

Here's mine... Complete with a pair of waders, aqua socks, fins and a rechargeable 12V air pump, all in the bag.

Goes with me every time I take a road trip that may find me, a stretch of water and some free time converging. One of my fondest memories is floating Leigh Lake in the Tetons and catching lake trout. Just because it was in the car.

I've taken it out a few times in the Sea Isle canals.

that is cool, didn't know such a thing existed. it would be a chore, bringing it in the boat but doable.

Oh man, don't get me started. Nothing like kayaks fishing in the middle of the boat cut that's hardly 2 boats wide leading to cold pass.

That's the flip side of etiquette. They block the only navigable water, then accuse you of being rude when you have to run past them...

A few weeks ago I gave up on getting where I wanted to go, for fear of incurring the wrath of a couple of dozen waders. Wading the shallows, but casting into the only passable cut.

I agree. I’d say most folks are courteous but the big thing I’ve seen is folks that don’t know who has the right of way when approaching each other perpendicular.

Also, if you don’t want to get buzzed, don’t fish in the highway. I hate when a kayak or boat is anchored up in a narrow channel, then yells at you when you pass him close. Warriors weekend is the worst for this type of thing.

Drunks and Sharks

I just cant convince myself to wade out in the water past my knees. I been watching shark week. In the last couple months sharks weighing close to and just over 1000 lbs have been caught "in the surf..." here in Galveston and Padre Island, and that's why I bought a boat. To each his own.
Tight lines my friends

Yet, you'll brave the highways to get to the beach.

I figure I'm safer in shark infested water than on I-45 on a weekend. And the numbers bear me out on that one.
