Rated 5 out of 5 by jwader57 Best Buy & Much Better Than Others
I am surrounded by Lakes & Rivers here in Sacramento, Calif. I have used this on breezy to light windy days. It performs alot better than my friend who has a $150.00 model.He bosted about his for a couple of months. I have been able to mount a fish finder & trolling motor and battery. And even a 3 rod holder and a small live well with a portable airator on this Baby. I would not trade it for the world, I have been able to stay out for 5 + 6 Hrs easy. I even bring home a good catch for the day out. There is a Bass club for out here In northern Calif for these float tubes, and think I will be joining. So get one of these when you can their great :) Calif & Life is great !! I am 50 and retired now and loving it,

This float tube is a great value. I have another brand also, from the other big name mail order company, but this one is better in almost every category. First, it has three air tubes instead of two. It makes it very comfortable to lean back while on the water. Second, the fabric is much thicker and seems to be of better quality. And third, this open face tube has a bar that connects the front tubes together and makes the whole boat more stable. It even has an adjustment strap that connects from the seat to the bar to alter the way that you sit in the seat. This is a fantastic addition that I had never seen before I purchased this tube. My other one doesn’t have this feature and leaves you feeling like you are being pushed forward the whole time. I have been very satisfied with this tube and would highly recommend it.

My wife bought this fishing tube for a fathers day gift last year. Iwas able to get to places that most boats could not get to. It was easy to tansport and air up. I never once had to worry about tipping over, and other fisherman thought it was a great way to get out to fish and relax.

After purchasing my first Lost Lake Float Tube and having a great amount of fishing success and overall enjoyment, I decided to get a float tube for my wife. I thought I should get one of the more expensive models assuming that it would be even more comfortable and enjoyable for her. We each gave her tube a try and agreed that my 'budget' tube was much better than her 'luxury' tube. I have ordered a second Lost Lake tube. The 'Luxury' model will be available should a third person be joining us. The Lost lake tube is easy to inflate and comfortable and stable in the water. You are seated in the water however, so in colder climes, you may want to wear waders or a wet suit.

If 14 pounds is too much for you to carry, try this: you can rig up a single wheel under it, to push it like a wheel barrow. I use a Woods sleeping bag tote to pack the Cat 4 deluxe, keeps it clean and neat.
The new trend seems to be a seat that is higher in the front on U-boats. This makes the user feel more secure but doesn't work for shorter people because it puts the front edge of the seat below the knee and their flippers stick up uselessly in the air!
Float Tubes may be used on lakes. Float tubes can once again be dangerous on large lakes in the event of high winds. Float tubes are not designed to "ride the waves" like a pontoon boat or an inflatable kayak is.
Float Tubes, while they can be used in rivers, are most definitely not recommended for river fishing. This is especially so if the river is fast moving, has rapids or has no current at all. Indeed, on fast moving rivers or where there are rapids, a float tube can be downright dangerous - especially if you are wearing waders.
not heavy, like maybe 15-25 lbs with all your gear in the pockets. It is a different story when you drag it out of the water though, more like 50 or 60 pounds. It does have holes to drain the water though.
