V-shaped and U-shaped Float Tubes


Float Tubes and Pontoon Boats make excellent craft for fishing in Utah. U and V shaped tubes usually ride higher in the water, reducing drag and making it easier to manuever. They are also easier to get in and out of than round style tubes, due to the open front. They're very stable and enjoyable to ride. They are typically a great value. They allow the angler to get very close to the fish they are pursuing, while not spooking the fish.

Prices for U or V shaped float tubes run from around $150 up to several hundred dollars, depending on the size, durability, brand and features of a given craft. Those with urethane air chambers (which tends to be more durable and last longer), tend to cost more. Those with vinyl air chambers are somewhat less expensive.

These kinds of tubes provide quick setup compared to a pontoon boat, are much lighter weight, and can be transported and stored in a smaller space and vehicle. They are easier to get in and out of then the round style tubes.

Some popular brands include Outcast Fat Cat and Fish Cat series of V-shaped tubes, Dave Scadden tubes, as well as others. You can find them at Sporting Goods stores such as Cabelas, Sportsman's Warehouse, Gart Sports, etc. as well as on many online retailers.
