I realize that many of you live in SOCAL where the weather is always sunny and beautiful. I live in the NE region of the country and our weather is not always nice.
I'd appreciate answers from float tubers in other less than ideal locations for the time when they decide to put their tubes up for the Winter. Right now the lake temperatures are in the lower 60's and the fish are starting to bite but I only have the weekend to fish and I'd like to make the most of what is left in the year.
I have a couple of decent tubes, a Waterskeeter Day Tripper and a Creek Company 8' Voyager pontoon style boat. I have waders and plenty of warm synthetic garments.
I guess what I am really asking is if there is a water temperature threshold where you finally say it's too cold to chance it? I will be float tubing alone and may well be the only watercraft on the lakes that I fish. I'm 56 years old and in good health and physical condition but I'm not what I once was and would appreciate some guidance.
