Got some practice today
Headed down to Bruneau Dunes SP today to try out the new tube. I like it!! I'm still learning to steer and my paddle isn't the most efficient, but I'll get there. Had a good day - temps in the 70s, sunny, and calm. Saw some huge bass jumping, but they weren't interested in anything I had. I did get 19 small bluegills and 5 bass that were too small (10 inches) to keep. This lake has a limit of 2 bass over 20 inches and is electric motors only so its a great place for tubes. I was the only one on the lake all day. Everyone else was fishing from the bank. Had fun, got a few fish, and a good sunburn. Can't ask for more.

CoolSounds like life is good and gettin' better. Always great to get out on the water, especially if you hook a few fish. Those little bluegills have kept me happy on many trips when I would have smelled like skunk otherwise. Gotta love 'em.

Keep practicing with the new tube. It takes a while until all of the maneuvering becomes automatic and you can concentrate on just the fishing.

There are lots of small lakes and ponds that are ideal for tubing. The ones that restrict bigger craft are great, but even some that don't can provide some good tubing and tooning. In fact, there are a lot of big lakes that have small arms and coves that you can fish just like they were small lakes. You don't have to cover an entire lake to have a good time and catch fish.
