Okay fellas,
As you know I been in Montana for almost a month. I'm gonna be heading back to Cali in a few more weeks...why? I have no clue lol
But I'm going back lol anyway the fishing gear in Montana is at ridiculous prices. New and used.
but I find immaculate gear in Pawn shops and thrift stores at great prices.
I've already bough so much stuff.
There's one more thing I want to buy, but I want some advice or feedback.
I found a brand new in box Cumberland for $130.
But I've seriously been thinking of switching over to a pontoon or yak.
What are your thoughts? I've only ever fished from tube.
Can some give me pros and cons?
Should I just buy both? lol

I bought a yak last March.
I can travel much farther than in the tube, but the yak is plainly uncomfortable to sit in.
I use my tube 8 times as much just for the comfort.

It all depends on your needs, do you want to have speed or stealth. Do you want to be in the water or out of the water. My thought are this with the Tube especially or the Pontoon boat you can be partially in the water which is good when dealing with current and windy situations. The Yak you are at the mercy of the winds and current. Yes a tube especially and a Pontoon are slower then a Yak but if you can not move as far or as far you tend to concentrate on presentation to the fish in your area more. Comfort is always important and I feel that the Pontoon is the best at this just my 2 cents. Then there is transport and storage to think about one breaks don the other does not. Only you know what you are looking for so I hope this helps.

OK if your a yak person, go with the top end models, best suited for fishing, 2500-3000 $$. On the other hand, a cumbie is $130, u can fish in small areas that u can't with a yak, portability goes to the cumbie. One thing I have learned is u have to be organized to tube...........just my 2 cents............GT

I feel ya.
Because of my portly figure I've had to learn how to be more compact.
Taking only bare necessities.
The pack rod I found is great cuz now I only need the one rod to fly fish or switch to spin.
But I feel for that reason I might like a pontoon.

Hey Jeff thanks for the insight I might just buy a toon and another tube especially if the price is right.
