Hi Jeff, your end of the week news ... what happened to it?

It’s going on two weeks now, did your “Big Change” happen?
I haven’t noticed anything yet.

Ok this has taken sometime and patience but we are done. Classic Accessories which has been a great supporter for our 10 years will no longer be part of the forum. We wish them the best and will continue to support them and there great program.
We have been working to finalize a new connection to fill this spot and need. Our new FTFF supporter will be Buck Bags. We will be posting a welcome to them with some details about the company later today.
This has been a lot of work but we have a new Float Tube Sponsor / Partner in Bucks Bag. And they have a new product to share with us as well.

I seem to remember a round BucksBag that was nearly bullet proof from back in the 90s.

Welcome BucksBags!

I have both the Roughneck and the Cutthroat here right now. The Cutthroat is a doughnut and it looks very durable.

Hey everyone!
Hey Jeff...

My name is Steve Iriguchi, everyone calls me gooch...

I hope everyone is weathering the pandemic well.
It has been a very long time since I posted anything on this site. I have looked in now and again over the years, and have been very happy to see the site grow and grow...well done Jeff.
I was very pleased and surprised to see Buck’s Bags as your latest sponsor.  

As some of you may know, I have been fishing since 1964, mostly here in Southern California. There is almost no piece of water I have not fished at least once, and no indigenous species I have not caught. I have been blessed to have fished Southern California in its glory days...
I have been toobing since the mid 70s. In fact I recently discovered my Trout Traps 250 float tube when I had to move last spring. It is a big, sturdy, old inner tube type belly boat that served me well for many many years.
I bought my first Buck’s Bag Bronco, 7’ pontoon boat, back in 1995, from the Ugly Bug Fly Shop in Casper Wyoming, while I was there filming “Starship Troopers”.
In typical toober/tooner fashion my boat was heavily modified. (That’s half the fun, right guys? 😜)
I stretched the frame 4” and welded the frame solid.
(I literally built my boat 1 time and never took it apart, not even when I sold it)
Expanded the rear deck for a 36qt. cooler
Installed a flasher and Lowrance finder on it.
I ran a MinKota Endura 12 volt motor
Built a folding travel wheel out of PVC
Custom anchor system (I could run 2 anchors )
Custom stripping basket
Custom landing basket
Custom tow barge for lobster traps
Custom tow bait sled
Running lights
I ran it in fresh and salt water...and in almost any kind of weather...
It served me well for many, many, years. I sold it in 2015 to an associate of mine and I believe it still fishes.

Bucks products represent  some of the original designs in toobing and tooning...
They are simple, robust, and very very strong. The materials are the best and strongest available. Their workmanship is superior..
The only drawback to this is that their boats tend to be a bit heavy...and a little pricey. But, with very little effort and expense these boats will last you a lifetime or two...
Customer service is exemplary. I have never had an issue..

I have always maintained that sooner or later as each individual moves upward in their kick boat fishing career, that a pontoon boat is the logical progression..
I have fished a lot of toobs and toons,  I still recommend Buck’s as the best and last boat you will ever need...

I’m very pleased to see Buck’s as a new sponsor for FTFF...
Again well done Jeff, and Associates.....

       gooch

PS... If anyone is interested in my old Trout Traps 250. you are welcome to it...
It is a classic round tube. It is a great tube for bigger men. Cuz it is BIG! Just let me know. I will try and see about posting a pic.  (I’ve always had a bit of trouble with that... ) besides...Jeff, I want to show you my Bucket List catches from last summer in New Orleans!.... you won’t believe the size of these things!!!!!!!😳😜

Gooch, I see you pop in now and then and I will say I am happy to see you post up again. We continue to grow and evolve. I would love to say it has been all easy and fun but we have had our trials. But its all part of growing for sure.

Bucks Bag was a surprise and we are grateful for the opportunity to promote there products. Thanks again bodfish again for being here and posting up your thoughts and ideas. We hope to see you return more often and add more info as I know you have a lot to add. Thanks again good to hear from you.
