Come on guys...

Get your mind off the cold and other things... How about a body of water he can try it on?

Mark (basseraci),

I have a pontoon style float tube. Lots of fun, good exercise, and there are advantages to it. You can get it into any body of water you can get it next to, and your profile is low to the water, so it's good stealthy fishing, I have snuck up on fish that would have been spooked by a boat.

That said, I have only used it during the warm weather. Nice to fish and "swim" at the same time. But, if you're willing to brave the cold in waders, and are willing to drive a little, I have used mine on White Pond in Putnam County. There are some decent bass in this lake, some pics, and the walleyes they stocked a few years ago are now 18-20". Other than that, you're a bit limited by regs. Certainly not allowed on the NYC reservoirs, or in Harriman. Canopus Lake in Fahnestock State Park would be a fun lake to use it on, but I'm not sure the regs allow it. Ditto for FDR park (Mohansic Lake). I know some other lakes in Dutchess County you could use it on, but we're talking a longer drive. I've also heard there are some great spots on Long Island, but have never ventured down there with it.

Let us know if you try it.:D
