New Fishtrap seats

Recommended Posts

I have about a 4 year old Fish Trap Voyager with the Black plastic seats that sit on the aluminum rail. Others that have used both this one and the new swivel seats. Would you spend the $120 to upgrade. I don't mind the seats I have although the new seats look so much better. Would this be money well spent or not?

The new seats look better??? I don't think the fish care what the inside of your house looks like. If your poles and canvas are still in good shape, then I would definitely not upgrade for $120. I have an older FT Guide with the rails going the long way across the tub. If you want a more cumfortable seat, then go to Fleet Farm like I did and pick up a chushioned boat seat with high back for about $25. It also swivels and fits the old style ,two rail support style Fish Traps perfectly.

Personally, I wouldn't buy for looks; however, I have a new voyageur and love the seats. They are warm, comfortable, and do look nice to top it off! If a sore rear is a problem, I would upgrade. Just my two cents!

when he said they look better

I don't think he meant they look prettier

I think he meant they look like they would be more comfortable

If you notice the seats are exactly the same, just have different pads. I think we should all bug the clam corp enough so they offer just the cushions in lieu of buying the whole seats.

I was thinking about just buying a decent boat seat, and attaching the little channel thaty came on the original seat to the bottom to make it fit the old style rail. Anyone tried this? Seems like it should be an easy upgrade...

FisherMN,

If you have the old style Fish Trap with the long seat rails and the four-bolt setup, then you will have no problem fitting a marine seat on to it. I know I found one at FleetFarm and saw the same one at Walmart of all places. I would think Marine General would have something, also.

I added a cushioned swivel seat to my guide. I looked at the original seats and made two metal brackets similar to the originals that clip into the rail. Bolted the chair and brackets to a piece of plywood. Now I have a comfortable seat that works just like the original seats. Total Cost $25. I will post some pictures if I get some time.

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
