Chairs for ice fishing

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone owns one of those plastic ice fishing chairs. The kind that hold your rod/reel combos in the back, the seat flips up, drink holder, and there is storage in the front. I hope you get the idea of the kind I am explaining. Anyway, how do you like them and would you suggest getting one?

I have had one for about 5 years and they are kind of handy at times. The one I have isn't very comfortable to sit on for any length of time and their a little high up in the air. They tend to slide around on smooth ice or plastic floors in fish houses. They are nice to have for carrying your rods and such on a wheeler. They strap down nice. It keeps your rods from tangling up on a bumpy ride. You can usually carry a nice amount of your beverage of choice in the lower compartment also smile.gif If you don't get any fish, you can refill your lower compartment with the empty cans.

I don't have a chair like that, but at wal-mart or target you can get those foldable canvas like chairs for real cheap. Mines got arm rests and a cup holder as well. Comfy and easy to transport and light.

I have yet to find a better chair than the ones I am using now. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of them. I will do my best to describe. They are square green "buckets" with a folding backrest on them. They have storage underneath. They come with a styrofoam cooler in them. I bought mine at Gander. I now have 3 of them. I put my mr. heater cooker in one along with a couple of 1# bottles. In the other, I can put all my necessities, jig box, vexilar, gaf, jaw spreaders, needle nose, etc.. I use them for hunting too.

I wouldn't trade my chair in for anything. And the best thing is it is cheap and convenient. Once I put the boat away for the winter, I simply unbolt the boat seat from the pedestal, and bolt in onto the bottom of a five gallon pail. You can still transport all your rods, tackle etc... in the pail. Once you get to your fishing spot, take everything out of the pail, turn it upside down, flip open your seat and you have a comfortable chair. I also must add that having it mounted on a five gallon pail is the perfect height for a chair while fishing.

CPR.... I have the type of chair you describe(can't remember the name). It is real handy and I am able to slide across the ice while I pull the sled in the other hand.

I've got one, they're called the Keeper Deluxe. I absolutely love it for early and late season on the ice. Once filled with gear they can weigh a considerable amount, and the seat can get uncomfortable. I think they run about $50, but I think they're nice to have.

My only vice is that they don't have big enough storage for my vexilar.

Other than that, the storage bin is a nice place to throw slab crappies once you catch em on the ice, and there is enough storage for about 5 combos tightly and for a couple small boxes of tackle.

I have had a keep delux for several years now. The things I like about it are; It sits up high, I am 6'4" and having the higher seat and the back rest saves my back and makes for a more enjoyable day fishing. I also use the storage area in the front for cans and trash. I keep my extras like candels, coleman mantels, flashlights etc. under the seat. When pulling my tub portable (Polor-Sport) I lay the Keeper on its back and travles well behind a snowmobile. When I want to get out the portable and move around more outside it is easy to carry from hole to hole.

I have a keeper deluxe and have had it for 4 years now and love it. It is nice to keep all of your gear in. just grab the chair and your cooler of beverages and go. highly recommend getting one.

    • Did well fishing today. Pitching jigs to the rocks in town produced fish. Also headed north up river and picked up some fish there. Released the females and kept a 2 man limit of males.  Couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather to be on the water.    
    • No pictures tonight because my phone was on the charger but I made no flip, smoked, hamburgers like this. ....   https://grillagrills.com/recipes/no-flip-burger-recipe/
    • Pfunk, I can take one of those jakes out for you! Slow first day for me, just one gobbling at the thunder.
    • You don't need one of those, they're overpriced anyway. Any smoker will do.
    • Thanks Dave. Sure wish I had one of them expensive fancy pellet grills.
    • yep sucker em with gobble call or gobbler yelps on a diaphragm ,they fit nicely in a deep fryer !
    • Man what a frustrating day. Had a pair of jakes that decided to spend their day in our vicinity and they ran off a pair of toms that were cutting across the plowing headed for us this morning, then this evening we were pretty confident the nicest tom we saw today would be headed past us to get back to the roost and sure enough... he followed the script. As I was readying the gun on him those 2 jakes decide to come out of the woods, he sees them, and dumps into the ravine with them chasing behind.    EDIT: Now 3 times they have run one off. That tom just made another attempt to sneak his way in and they ran him off again. Never wanted to shoot a jake as bad as I want these two gone.
    • O i know they can be.  I have a good CO and fire detector.  I had one in my last house and it worked good.  I dont plan on doing much sleeping in it maybe a few times a winter.  
    • It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests.   I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours.    I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour.    Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.
