I lost 1/2 my paddle yesterday in the lake. I looked for it but could not find it. I will go back to look for it again, if I know it floats with the end plug inserted. I would assume it does, but I need to know for sure before I invest more time in looking for it.

It's my understanding that either half of the paddle should float. I believe both shafts have foam flotation in them. I can check mine tonight when I get home and let you know. Maybe someone else can chime in as well. I hope you find it.

Well if you're talking about the paddle that comes with the Pro Angler, yes it does float.
After tying a string on mine so as not to have to go swimming for it, I threw both ends in the swimming pool, and with or without
the end cap, THEY FLOAT!

Hope you find yours.

"pjs" is correct in the floatability assessment. Hope you find the missing piece.

Thanks guys. Based on the facts u have given me, I will resume my search this morning. A buddy will me joining me so we can cover more water. I noticed it was gone in the first half hour, so the most water I have to look in is about 25 acres, and it is only a 100 acre lake.
