Does anyone have any leads on a front butt seat that would have a little more back support? I didn't know if anything was pre-made for us older guys with back problems.
I could make one by welding up a frame that would go between seat and seat base but I thought I probably wasn't the only bass fisherman with back trouble.
The higher base is what I want, kinda like sitting on a bar stool! Just looking for a little more support.
Thanks in advance.

It really helps to get one of the Swivel Eze seat plates to tilt the butt seat to a forward position. Having that downward angle keeps the seat from cutting into the back of your legs. I also have the back off of a small office chair welded to a drop-in peg for the pole. This allows me to stand but have a entirely flat surface to lean against just above my hips. I want to stand for the first couple of hours to run the Spook properly. I then switch out the flat back for the tilted butt seat for the rest of the day.

Thx Donald,
I do the same thing while fishing. I can stand for a while but then must lean on something to support the back. I want to be in an almost standing position for throwing certain baits, but still have the support. I'll check out Eze seat base, and keep looking.
Thx again.
Tom

Took a picture of this back rest that I use to make. I only have this one left and would part with it.

Check these seats out. You can spin them around and either lean, or sit.

Been looking at those
How tall are you, and does it support the lower back?

If you are talking to me, I am about 5'9". The "seat" is above my butt at about my belt line. I leave it perpendicular to the deck and just lean against it. It would be possible to sit on it, but I would have to lower it.

Use a hydraulic pedestal to adjust for height.

Bad back here too. i just bought a hydraulic adjustable pedestal and put a regular seat with a back on it like you'd put in the back of the boat on it. Works great and I can go all day now.

I love the smell of two stroke in the morning.
