I either stand with no seat, or use a tall stand-up pedestal with a butt seat

Butt seats are for bass boats and musky heads... isn't this the Walleye forum?

A butt seat. I do not sit on it though, I just lean against it. It seams to help my back after a few days on the water.

I've never fished with a butt seat. I just stand or use the regular seat. What makes the butt seat that much better?

I like it because they are adjustable so that you can either lean against it or sit at different heights. I prefer to be a little higher up when fishing in the bow compared to a regular seat which is lower than I like to be up there. Like Mike said it can help out your back too if you've been out casting for a while. Plus, you're not always getting up and sitting down as you're already in a standing position. Another positive is that it's smaller in size and less to work around when in the bow. I guess the bottom line is it gives you more flexibility over a regular seat that is typically not adjustable. I wish I would have went to a butt/pedestal seat a lot sooner than I did but everyone has their preference.

I like a regular seat when jigging. I might get a butt seat this year for when I'm Bass fishing. When Bass fishing I like to see where I'm casting to, fish, docks, weeds, or whatnot. If I'm vertical jigging in 15'-55' of water I'm watching the rod tip or the graph, might as well be comfortable.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
