WTB: New/Used Float Tube

Hey everyone. I've borrowed a float tube a few times and really enjoy fishing from them, and now have a little bit of spending money. Figured I would buy my own float tube.

I was thinking about seeing if anybody out there has a float tube they are willing to let go for a reasonable price. I'm on a pretty limited budget, but would like to get something decent.

I am looking for any float tube, new or used, as long as it is in good shape and holds air. I am open to styles (U-boat, V-shaped dual bladder, etc....). If fins and/or a pump comes with it then so much the better.

Looking to spend at MOST $150, hopefully a little less. I know its not much.

So if anybody out there has a float tube, new or used, with or without fins and a pump, let me know. Send me a PM or drop a post. I can't spend too much on it, but would definitely appreciate a good deal.

Newby, this is slightly more than you were wanting to spend, but its a great float tube and of course its brand new. Currently on sale for a very reasonable price. I bought one of these a couple of years ago and haven't regretted it. I'm currently looking forward to the opportunity to test it out here in Colorado as I've only fished on warmwater lakes in TN with it and can't wait for warm weather next year to give it a go...

Newby, there are actually some times that I think about un-retiring my float tube because I am not sure I can fish as efficiently out of my pontoon. A float tube moves much slower in the water and does not drift on you as much as a toon. In the summer months a float tube would be much cooler than a tune. You can cover more water in a toon but I think you can fish more efficiently in a tube. If you get a tune get one that does not have nylon as the outer coating...Mudbug poped his on the rocks at rocky point and if you drifted Lees Ferry I would hate for that to happen too. Just something to think about.

We just put our Fish cat 4's on clearance to 149.98$ I own one and love it! They were 199$ 5 yr warranty and you sit very high so better casting and less cold. I've had mine 5 years, they came out with a new net but other than that no difference

Newby, Those look like good alternatives and they would be easy to put in a car.

Thanks for all the offers and replies everyone.

Looks like I am ending up with a smokin' deal on a Creek Co. ODC 420 .

I was impressed by all the offers and willingness to give a guy a deal.
