Float tube is good for hiking in or if you don't have a vehicle large enough to haul a pontoon. I have a Fishcat float tube which has straps to attach and I've easily carried it into Chevlon Canyon. I also have a pontoon which I prefer to use for more accessible places.

I have fished quite a few different floattubes and the fishcat 4 is the best one I have tried by far. You sit higher up out of the water and the material its made of is a lot stronger and better quality than others. It costs a little more but its worth it because it will last longer. Have had it 6 years now and never had a problem with it.

Really? Was it hard to get used to?

Very easy to use, same as a regular floattube, it just keeps your butt out of the water a little more. Now going from a floattube to a pontoon will be a little weird at first but you get used to it very quick.

Good choice, that's definitely the way to go if you can afford it.
