Put the tube on Meredith today. Like a dummy I forgot to take my phone so no pics. Pretty good day on the water. Caught a couple dozen gills up to about 9 inches long which is typical for there, a couple carp about 4-5 lbs and a channel cat about 18 inches long. Used my typical rig of an unpainted jig hook and a piece of crawler. All fish were released to fight another day.

On a sad note, this was the last trip for the tube. About a month ago I notice a seam was beginning to split so I stitched the seam with waxed thread and slapped some flextape on it. That seemed to work but when I got home and got the tube out of the truck I noticed the seam busted wide open. Split about 30 inches. This means the tube is no longer safe to use so I got all the gear out of it and tossed it in the dumpster

I really am not that surprised. Tube are good for about 3 years and I've had that one for at least that long. Caught a lot of really good fish out of it and hate to see it gone. Already looked online and I can buy a factory blem tube just like that one for $79 straight from the factory. A minor blem means nothing to me and I doubt the slabs will care either. So today was a good day fishing but with a sad ending.

Good post Flags. Glad you got onto some nice fish and had a good time on the water. As for your old tube it served well, you will have a NEW one for sure.


Side Note: Always love those North Texas post. Keep em coming.

Yeah but a kayak is harder to haul around, takes up more storage space and I can get in places with the tube that I can't with a kayak. I can deflate the tube and pack it down but can have it inflated and ready to go in less than 10 min.
