Tricked Out Tubes
CoolI have never been able to settle for "off the shelf" stuff. I always gotta mess with it. I have been playing with different kinds of rod holders, sonar setups and other "add-ons" for my craft for many years.

Apparently, I am not alone, when it comes to the need to add extra goodies to floatation craft. Here are some pics of some of the ways that folks have tricked out their rides.


Sorry. Not a tube, but a funny look at fishing techno.


A Bucks Bag tube that incorporated a wooden rack for both rods and sonar transducer. Note the acid filled battery in its special upright holder.


One of several Red Caddis Sierras we have tricked out with all the goodies.


TubeBabe's tricked out Caddis Sierra and a 12# flathead cat.
