Replacement Boat Seats

5 posts in this topic

Any recomendations on after market brands of boat seats. I picked up a couple Wise brand seats last year for $50 each at Fleet Farm and they have not held up well in my opinion. They looked decent but the hinges all bent and some of the screws fell out. I will not buy them again. Does anyone have the Navisyle Tempress brand with the plactic hinges? They are closer to $100 each but I think you may get what you pay for. I would appreciate any feedback. Thank you.

You for sure get what you pay for when it comes to seat in the boat.

I've had 2 sets (no, they didn't last indefinatly) sets of Cabelas "big man" boat seats. I'm an average size guy, but those seats are sooo much nicer for long days on the water. In fact, I'm pretty sure Cabelas had them in a sale flyer I saw a couple days ago. Check thier website.

A couple years ago i bought a couple of the higher priced seats from cabela's, don't rememember brand. Within a month both were broke. One broke from use by a 140 lb person. Sent them back to cabela's and got refund with no problem. Bought 2 lunds without the straps. Great seats.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.

      I dont think you will have trouble. Just be careful. There are a million trucks driving all over the place now

      Big Pine as of 1/15 had 16" of ice on the north side.  Only drilled 5 holes and all were around 16" according to my ice scoop.  Just placed fish house out there for the nephew and called it good.  Sorry no fishing report.
