The Float Tube Fishing Forum has been around now for 8 years, and in that time we have developed a reputation for being in the mix of all things float tube. Our job has been to spread the word about this amazing and sometimes miss understood sport. It is also to promote safety, share tips and techniques and educate the newbies to the sport. We have been doing this for the past 8 years now and I think we have done this well, but there is always work to be done and room to improve.
But about 5 years in we had some pushing from members to start a tournament series involving only float tubes. This at the time seemed like a good idea, but quickly lead to some problems and the realization that we were not ready. So that first attempted was ditched and we moved back to our strong suits, education, safety and just promoting the sport. Will time heals old wounds and after about 2 years of growth we looked to be more prepared to run the Float Tube Tournament Series. We are now in the second year and things could not be going any better. Our tournament is open to anyone in the U.S. and we hope to expand to outside the U.S. in time. You can fish any body of water that can be float tubed, and that includes both freshwater and saltwater.
The tournament runs for about 3 months twice a year and has some ever growing prizes. Grand prize is a new Cumberland Float Tube and could be growing even more soon. There are about 7 to 8 different fishing product companies that join up to promote and provide prizes like lures, apparel, and float tube related products. At this point, we can say that this is running so well that we plan on continuing these tournaments for years to come, and if it goes like the forum it will just continue to grow and thrive as it moves on.
