I have a hydro bike that is a lot like this and I'm not gonna lie, I love it!

I find myself using it more than my actual boat I have on the lake I live on because it's so much easier (easier on and off lift, easy maneuverability) and reliable (no motor trouble!) and of course quieter!

Have caught many a big fish including 10-15 lb carp and never had a problem with it!

So.. it's a glorified paddleboat for grownups?

I love fishing out of paddleboats, I'm sure I'd love fishing out of that thing. However I don't think either trump canoe fishing, at least for my personal preference.

the part i like with either, the Itbike or even the hydro...is that you sit up higher for casting etc...and i see some room for "home improvement" with the Itbike to customize it more for fishin...

had to make an edit to the price of the Itbike...i emailed for a quote...and this is what was sent from them directly...

"The price of the single fibre glass itBike is $1,299.00 plus $150.00 delivery to your door,

4-7 days"

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
