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.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
