When there are only two in a boat, why do both fish off front deck? My boat isn't that big but there's still more than ample room to fish off the back deck. I've never even thought about leaving the back deck to go "hold hands" with the person fishing up front.

Why do so many people fish two off front deck and leave the back empty?

In a team tournament, you can better see where your partner is casting, and what he is throwing to "work together". Sometimes it gets in the way if you're working small targets, but it definitely prevents the casting way forward from the back deck and blocking the front deck.

I like my back-deck partner to work differently than me until we are on a pattern. If I am fishing shallow and/or slow, they can fish the deep side or get multiple casts at different angles from targets I skipped over. I'll even save some specifically for the back deck when fishing team tournaments, it takes communication that I haven't mastered to point those out...

I can't stand anyone on my back deck. If you fish with you will be up front with me.

Makes boat control easier. Don't have to worry about where the back end is. Also if i need to step off the trolling motor in the wind. You are right there to take over.

I don't care either way. It's their choice. Plenty of room up front or they can stay on the back deck.

Bass fishermen are a competitive breed in general. One of my buds that I used to fish with a lot would get right on the nose of the boat with me running the TM. He would get so excited when the fish were biting, trying to hit the prime spots first, he would be standing in front of the trolling motor foot pedal.

I told him one day at Monticello, "Bro, I bought way too big a boat". He asked why do you think that??

I said, "Well, I have a 20 foot boat and we are standing on the front 3 feet of it!"

He turns around and realizes where he is standing and says "Ha! I see what you mean" but he still wouldn't go to the back. LOLS

If you fish off shore in the waves, it's easier to control a boat with more of the weight up front

I like fishing two up front, easier if there is a partner you're accustomed to fishing with.
