  • float tube fishing tipsGFO Library: Float Tube Fishing 101: Part 1

    Over the years, I've fished a lot of "backyard" fishing holes. Some have been small enough that you could throw a rock across. Then there is my neighbor about 30 minutes to the north, the Great Lake Erie. Regardless of the size of the lake, float tubes give you an option to get off shore and cover greater areas.

    I've put a float tube in just about every type of water imaginable. Although I fish more often from a bass boat with my wife now, I've got to tell you that fishing from my belly boat is the most enjoyable, plain old FUN way to fish and stay cool on hot summer days. It is exhilarating to be eye-to-eye with a four-pound (and BIGGER) bass!
