Inflatable float tubes, also referred to as “belly boats”, are often used by fishermen to sneak into the hard to get to areas of a lake or river. They may look like a simple inner-tube with some straps on it, but modern float tubes are designed to be a top notch fishing craft. Over the years float tubes have been streamlined for better self-propulsion and steering. The material is tough and punctures are not very common.
Fishing from a float tube is becoming more and more popular, especially with fly fishermen. One “fly guy” from Southern Indiana, Jeff Carmichael, has written many articles and posted several videos on his web site about fishing from a float tube. Jeff’s YouTube channel has a number of videos that provide information about how to fish from a float tube.
Previously, Portable Kayaks carried Creek Company float tubes, however they are no longer for sale here due to Creek Company changing their wholesale drop ship program.

The Twin Troller X10 by Freedom Electric Marine is a two person fishing boat that features a patented electric propulsion system and hands free foot control. The boat will move in any direction based on the amount of pressure used on the foot pedals. There are two 36 pound thrust trolling motors (made by MotorGuide) that are built in under the boat, protected by guards that allow water to pass easily through while keeping weeds and other debris out. The X10 will operate in as little as 8 inches of water.
The Twin Troller X10 can “turn on a dime”, move straight forward, straight backwards or rotate 360 degrees very easily. This makes the boat perfect for getting into tight locations. The Twin Troller concept makes it super easy to adjust to windy conditions, too. All this and it’s “hands free”! Operating the boat with your feet gives you freedom that you can’t find in any other fishing boat on the market.Available in 2 color choices:
