No. Too far to the bridge from there. We fish the south bridge. Just park on the median and walk down.

Where's my Bobber. I went out there this past Saturday. I was kinda windy but I had a Blast. I met a guy from the forum (Inliner). There was another guy out there in a tube. And he knew what he was doing LOL. Thanks for the help Sir. That is what the forum is here for.

I was only out for a short while. I had four or five bumps. And got one to the top but he came off. i was really just getting used to being in a tube. I think I might have created a monster. LOL

You will only get better with TOW & TIYT(time in yo tube).Keep at it and you will soon be able to maneuver & catch just like those pros like WMB,JE,Epic and the like.They have been at it for a minute. I`m still learning myself but I have to pick days that don`t have a lot of wind in the forcast because of my handicap.The monster will become a addiction from which there is no cure my brother. thumb

With the weather change. Do you think that they might still be under the bridge or headed to the creeks?

They should be there only I would target the deeper pillings closest to where the creek runs under the bridge and work my way shallower until I got a bite . 2cents

Crappie fishing out of a tube ought to ALMOST be illegal!

Anyone who DOESN'T tube fish is an idiot!!!


PERIOD!!! No ifs ands or butts!!!

I have fished out of some of the best bass boats ever made.

I've fished off the bank... ESPECIALLY!!!! If you fish off the bank...GET A TUBE!!!

( Ithink we're done here .)

One other thing: I've only caught over 100 lbs. Of Largemouths in one day... And did it walking into the water on a VERY frequented lake.. FROM THE LAUNCH RAMP!

Tubes RULE!!!

There is nothing like hooking into a 25+ catfish in a tube. Scary and fun at the same time.

Sirjet, hooking and being pulled around is not as scary as trying to land a big fish from a tube. Catfish spines can puncture you or the tube, same if you catch a big stiper or red on a lure with treble hooks. I usually work myself away from them sharp points until they tire out, and use a lip gripper at arms length, then cut off the spines if they will go on a stringer. Some big ones have taken me 30 minutes, so that cuts into catching others. I sometimes use a rigged up a stick that tangles the hook (takes less space than a telescopic net), to help shorten that landing time.

Good Deal. I also fear the spines when catfishing out of my tube.

Absolutely the best way to fish if you have a friendly water body out of major wind. I started more than 50 years ago using a Bob Brown Fish Master Tube with Fish Master Flappers. Still have two tubes. Assumed they would be rotten since I have not used them in several years. Got them out, looked good, added a fishfinder and am looking forward to going a little later. I'm getting a little long in the tooth, so will have to be a little more careful than I remember being when I started.
