    Tubed the Barrett lake again in 2019.....And it was epic. Caught my 1st fish of the day on the ole popper! The fish hit it on the pause, we were talking to see which direction we'd go from PP and then blam! Almost a 4 lbs....Yes, we had a scale this time around. About 40 bass between the 2 of us, with my son catching all of his fish on wackyrigged senkos and me one on the popper, most on the ika and the almost 5 pounder on the kinkey beaver! As you can see we had some tube issues, our tubes are 10 years plus old and the UV finally took its toll on the outer skins. My sons tube popped so loud we thought it was a gun shot! Fun times! Any thoughts on a replacement tube? Stay with Outcast??

    Great job landing so many quality fish.
    I heard you have to under inflate them in the morning, planning on expansion of air when sun hits them, causing them to burst.

    Holy crap! I couldn’t help LOL! That tube looks knarly and yet your son is still smiling. I guess if the fish are biting who cares . I’d still stick with fishcat. That’s probably the only reason why they lasted so long. I just purchased a new Super Fat Cat and my old green one still floats like a champ. The zippers no longer work but it still rides like a champ.

    MaxZmus , those zippers can be fixed! YouTube!

    Saw a guy headed out in a Cumberland, like mine, but almost did not recognize it because it was so big! Majorly over-inflated! I only pump mine as tight as I can get it with my lungs!

    Well, the last time I was at Barrett early June I pumped up my tube to what I normally due and the zipper busted off where the tube zips up and holds the tube itself in. I called Out-Cast to see if I could get them to replace the zippers but I was told by the looks of the faded blue outer skin that these tubes have been used a lot, and they have. They told me usually the nylon materials give way before the zippers do, and on my sons it did. But like I said we got many good trips out of these tubes so now we need to invest on new ones. Max I'm looking at the Fat Cat that has the air filled seats and the urethane bladder too. Just money!

    Air warmed up expands causing an increase of pressure plus an increase in elevation does the same thing.
