Hello all,

I've been tubing for a year now and just wanted to share by set up.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It is still a work in progress and am open to any criticism and suggestions.
I plan on adding a fish finder some time in the next couple of months.
I am also thinking of utilizing a dry box set up behind the seat, just to stow a jacket or something like that.

The rod holder design came from a youtube video I saw some time ago. I will try to post the like, if I find it.

Criticism why that is badass bro, you are dialed in and ready for war. Nice the Cumberland is a great boat so when is the maiden voyage and where we look forward to more reports in the future. Do you have plans for the Fishfinder how are you going to mount it? Have you thought about the Fishfindermount system just wondering?

Thanks for that.
I have already been out with to Perris, Castaic, and most recently to Puddingstone.
Looking forward to fish more fresh water locations, as soon as I find some (looking for suggestions).

Here is my PB, 4.5 lbs i hooked in Perris last summer.

I figure, I'm going to mount the fish finder on the rack itself. There is a place up front that I can use with the PVC pipe which will allow me to mount on top and line the transducer through.

Welcome to the forum part.time.angler.

I see you have your Cumberland pretty well rigged. I put a 5 gallon bucket behind the seat, no lid. Super easy access and my jackets or whatever stays dry unless the water is pretty choppy or it is raining.

I tried using the bucket as suggested but it made the backrest uncomfortable and it was a pain reaching behind to pull out tackle boxes. I'm probably going to rig up a small container I already have on the right side using the d-rings.

My son gifted me a Lowrance Hook2 5x for Father's Day and I will rigging that up soon as well.

I will post pictures soon and let you all know how my next outing goes.
