Default place to buy raft?

headed down to Gulf Shores for a week this weekend. Looking for an inexpensive raft to buy or rent for the week. Just want something to get the baits out deep versus trying to cast...any thoughts?

buy one of the cheap blow upones at wal-mart, toss a bucket in it to keep your hooks and baits in so you don't poke a hole in it and sink

Yeah, that should work pretty well. However, depending on where you fish on the beach, its almost easier just to cast out because of the shallow water and sand bars.

I would use the raft. I am going to go that route next year in Destin. I did alot of wading to cast out this year and it is risky. Also, I couldn't ever get it out far enough wading out. I did catch one shark, but probably would of had better luck getting it past the second sand bar.

I just got this, took it out this afternoon on Lake Lanier in N. Ga., and plan on using it for the same thing down there next week (Ike permitting)-Less than $100 and has future uses as well......
