Fly Fishing – Float Tubing – Tips and Help for Topwater and Streamers

Come along with me as I once again am fly fishing from my float tube on a small lake here in NW Wisconsin for largemouth bass. I will show you how to set up a topwater (popper) as well as a better system for rigging your streamers so that you don’t get bit off my pesky pike.
NW Wisconsin lake
Fishing from a float tube is both very enjoyable and highly productive and you can see that as I am able to ‘sneak’ in and around many lily pads. By doing so quietly I am able to get very close and make some accurate cast between the pads for some big bass.

The real beauty of a float tube is that you can be in and out in a jiffy and you won’t have to trailer a boat or all the hassle that comes with a boat … not to speak of the health benefits of being your own trolling motor!

If you have any fly fishing questions you can contact me via the comment section below or by emailing me at I will do my best to quickly and accurately get back to you with an answer.

Lastly …. if you’d like to come north and fish from a float tube for bass, pike and even musky … get in touch with me and we can set something up that will result in a trip you won’t soon forget.
