Float Tube Motors?

Float tubes are a convenient and affordable way to get on the water, and finally get to those fish that you can't reach from shore. Discuss float tubes, outfitting float tubes for fishing, and float tube fishing.

Float Tube Motors?

Post by Gotfish? »

What is the best battery powered motor propulsion for a float tube? I see folks at Barrett with them, with the water high this year it really helps getting to the back areas before the sun rises, especially when the wind is in the wrong direction. I still intend to mostly use my fins but to cover long distances quickly, a float tube friendly setup would be nice. I don't need it for shorter distances as I am fit enough for that. Float tubing will still be a great low intensity exercise for me.

I know the simplest set up is a rechargeable drill with a long prop but that seems crude and limited. Much appreciate sharing any experience you have.

Check in with Dannicus

Ran into him a few weeks back at El Cap and saw his tube setup. He's running a sweet little Bixby kit. Very clean setup.
