    You taking about the docs duck feet? Those might be ok to get you started. You'll want something with more push when you want to cover bigger water, aka: barrett, otay, etc. you'll get the idea when you get out there. For now, they'll be fine.

    Caddis Nevada Gold.
    Turn Ons: Relatiively inexpensive, can be found for under a hundred bucks if you shop. Floats my 250 pound carcass. Feels very stable, even in rougher water (see below) Has lots of storage. Velcro straps forward of the cargo pockets will hold a rod or two horizontally; I strapped on a 3rd Grip (blue thing on right) for a vertical mount to keep the reels from getting soaked when fishing saltwater.
    Turn Offs: Rides low in water. Side storage pockets are kinda floppy, stuff seems to slide inward toward my lap and the storage pockets get wet. (May not be an issue if you're fishing freshwater, with no three foot wakes from aircraft carriers and cargo ships).

    Fins: Sometimes use Churchill Makapu'u (boogie board fins) when trunkin' it in saltwater.
    Force fins over dive booties sometimes when fishing without waders.
    Force fins directly over waders.

    I use a 20 year old Outcast Super Fat Cat, it has crust lines on it and the logo has faded away. I also only use Simms G3 waders and Force Fins. I used the u boats and cheaper stuff for a long time but it just doesn't hold up as much. I'm finally gonna get another tube and I'm looking at the Seven Bass designs. The trolling motor capability is just too tempting especially on these bigger lakes like Otay and Barrett.
