    Default Bluegills with a Float Tube

    I'm lovin' this Scadden Outlaw Escape. I fish in a clean, almost no pollution lake with my 3wt and floating line.

    I must have caught near 100 Bluegills and a few other species today. Beautiful weather, 80, and light wind.

    I've been wet wading (no chest waders, just a bathing suit, tee shirt and sneakers inside flip fins) I caught on top water poppers, unweighted streamers, and the best tungsten bead micro buggers.

    I release all the fish!

    PS - I would give Dave Scadden a kiss if I was that sort of guy (not that there is anything wrong with that!) My old float tube would leak a little, I had to refill a bit before each trip, but this pontoon doesn't loose any air at all! It is really well built.

    Tight Lines,

    nice fishing. Id love one of those Scadden boats. I use a float tube for larg mouth in a bath tub sized lake with great weed coverage. My buddy and I caught 50 in 3 hours. Great fun in a tube

    Very nice. I have a Fish Cat 4 tube and a Superfine Touch 2wt that I go after bluegill for; lots of fun.

    Awesome, I have always wanted to try the float tube, except for the big snakes in the lakes I fish.
