The Best Float Tube Fins

The Best Float Tube Fins
Float fishing with small pontoon boats has become increasingly popular over the last few years. The light and small pontoon boats used in float fishing lets the fisherman easily access deeper and more isolated area where prize fish may be lurking. These boats aren't motorized--the fisherman kicks or paddles the boat to get to where they want to go. A good set of fins is a necessity for the angler.

Outcast Fins

Outcast fins, produced by Outcast Sporting Gear, are simple and easy to use. That's a real plus when you're on the water--after all, you want to fish, not spend all day putting your fins on. The design is a basic step-in style, with a single strap on top to secure the fins once they're on your feet.

A nice bonus is each fin's "fin keeper"--a strap attached to each fin with a short cord that secures to your ankle. Should your fin slip off, you won't have to paddle frantically downstream after it as it floats away.

Omega Aquatics Flipfins

Omega Aquatics has done some original thinking in designing the Flipfin. These fins feature a folding fin portion that you can lock in an up position when you're on land or in a boat. When you're in the water, just push down to lock them in place and kick away!

The build quality and materials used in Flipfins is first-rate--they're built for use by scuba divers as well as fishermen, so the performance expectations are accordingly higher. Be sure to size your foot properly before buying a pair to ensure a good fit.
