If you do a lot of casting from the bow, it will be the best investment you'll ever make.

I wouldn't own a boat without one.

I have a regular seat on my front casting deck that I will be changing over to a butt pad this winter. It's a huge difference.

I agree completely with Rost. I have had a stand up pedestal in the bow now for several years. If you do a lot of casting, it is great. Be aware that you do have to have a bit more agility and ability to balance yourself than you would if you were sitting. When you get used to it, it is not a problem.

I almost exclusively fish walleyes, and wouldn't fish without a stand up seat. I wish it was even a bit taller, but I just feel more comfortable standing (with this to lean on a bit).

I always wanted to put one in my last boat but never did. When I got my new boat it was the first thing I did and wish I would have done it in my old boat earlier. I like the flexibility of being able to lower it down and sit on it or raise it up and lean against it...especially when lindy rigging because I like the feel of the line and setting the hook when standing compared to sitting.

Got one, use it all the time. Casting is an obvious application, but I also use mine when live bait rigging, watching bobbers, fishing jigs or blade baits in the river, etc. At times I move it back by my kicker and use it when pulling cranks. It really is a comfortable way to fish, I don't sit down in the boat a lot (but I lean a lot grin.gif). Get the tallest one you can (unless you're a short guy).

I also agree with perch and the rest , get one (or two) .

I use one on my bow for all applications and almost never use my regular sit down seat up there . I think you'll enjoy the set up once you use it .

Good luck & have fun !!!

I mimic PerchJerker's post. Your back will thank you. Worth every penny. For fishing walleyes I like it most because I don't get fatigued like I would sitting in a regular seat.

I have a semi bad back.. and would not be able to fish too long without a pro-pole and but seat... I am mostly a bass guy so being up as high as possible is best and having the chair to more lean against is awesome!

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?
    • Bigfatbert
      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
