Seat O The Pants harness - do you have one?

4 posts in this topic

Looking at the Cabelas catalog, thinking about getting the Seat o the Pants 'Supreme Harness' for my wife, does anyone have one of these? How do you like it? How hard is it to slip on? I have the original Seat o the pants, it is nice with that pouch to hold everything buts its kind of a pain in the arse to put on. This new one looks like more of a vest and might be easier to put on...

Any comments appreciated.

Don't have one but I did just buy a vest style harness and I love it compared to the basic 5 point harness I had before. Basically, I just step into the leg loops, snap one buckle around the chest ala life vest style, button the vest, and make sure the leg loops are tight. Nice not having everything a tangled mess and trying to figure it out at 6 am! I'd go with a vest style if she plans to go any decent amount with you.

BTW, BlackJack, are you getting out opening morning? I plan to to be in a tree a little ways northwest of New London come legal light. Whoo-hoo! grin.gif

Chucker, I'll be getting out several times over the weekend, just not sure when. My 83 year old dad wants to go fishing, hard to turn that down, the bow season goes on for 3 1/2 months, lots of time to hunt. If its nice, I'll probably go fishing, if its cloudy and rainy, I'll be bowhunting, especially if its and east wind. I have a couple new spots that require and east wind and I'd like to try them.

BTW, I hunt 25 miles NW of Willmar, 10 miles south of Brooten.

BUMP - Someone has to have one of these harnesses or is Summit going out of business? grin.gif

BlackJack, gotcha. I hunt mainly on different places on the outskirts of and surrounding Sibley Park, Games and Norway Lake areas. I would go fishing with my dad too as there will be plenty of time to hunt these next three months!

I see that Sibley is doing a muzzleloader hunt again this year - does only. Have you ever done this? I may have to put in for a permit some year, which means I'd have to get a muzzleloader!

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).
