What do you use for portable chairs?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what people use for portable chairs. Bucket, fold up, tripod, etc. Been looking at some nice fold up chairs with a padded swivel seat. But they are 11 pounds each. I want to stay as light as possible. I also have a tripod chair but don't really like a post riding up my crotch.

I use a regular folding camping chair.... Probably dont walk as far as some but a lot of sitting with ice fishing so that was one thing I wanted to be comfortable.  It all goes on the sled anyhow so don't notice it to much.

Same here. Picked up this folding high back on fall clearance for around $15 some years back. Weighs around 5 lbs, I'd guess.  Clamped a rod holder right onto the tube arm.

When portable fishing I like this chair, the metal bar from the front leg to the back leg helps to keep you from sinking in the snow if you have no floor. The table is handy.

My Wheel House is a very open floor plan. You need a chair. I have 3 options, metal Timber Ridge from Costco (one set up, one folded in corner) fold up nylon (couple hanging on hooks) and the bucket. I have the Eskimo Hub I use on walking ice with my 4X4 Smitty Sled. I use the Timber Ridge folding chairs.

The last two chairs seem like they'd work out pretty well.

I'm one that moves around too much.  I bring a typical fold up camp chair out but rarely use it.  If I'm not in the wheel house I'm usually just kneeling.  It's getting harder to spend the days that way though!

I did pick up a Dream Chair awhile back I should start using.  Maybe figure how to just keep that baby in a sled for hole hopping. :)

Thanks for the ideas, guys. I also tried the fold up camping chairs but I seem to sink down into them. Those other chairs look like they would be more firm to sit on.

Exactly. That's why I can't use the camp chairs and went with the high-back one...three spinal surgeries fudge things up. Made a huge difference in being comfy for me.

When I travel light....I use this chair from Cabelas.  No back support but I typically walk, pulling my gear.  Compact and light is how I have to keep my gear.  Plus, moving around a lot, this is quick, light, and easy.image.thumb.png.8c6d8625d850332521a53ec1f13a8241.png

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
