Plano, IL – Challenged to come up with a better angling perch for perch (or whatever species ice-anglers pursue), the fishy folks at Frabill have engineered two new portable seating/storage options to serve hard-water anglers and anyone else who longs for a high-capacity, lightweight and mobile storage vessel that pulls double-duty as a comfortable seat.

Introduced last season as two of six different innovative seating options on Frabill’s industry-leading flip-over ice fishing shelters, the Frabill Model 640000 Padded Trunk and Frabill Model 640020 Boat Seat On Trunk have been enthusiastically embraced by anglers. For the 2016/2017 ice season, these two highly-practical items are now available for individual purchase.


A lightweight-yet-durable, molded plastic trunk serves as the utilitarian base for both models. The 68-quart, impact-resistant trunk provides ample room for storage of rod and reel combos, heaters, extra propane cylinders, bait containers, fishing electronics and more, while durable latches keep such valuable contents protected from the weather. Integral tie-down brackets are located at each end of the trunk for securing it to cargo racks, and the fully removable lid features a molded reinforcing grid that supports the most full-figured of anglers. Did we mention they lock? Four molded hasps allow these trunks to be secured with padlocks or zip-ties.


Up top, the Frabill Padded Trunk and Boat Seat On Trunk are all about comfort. The Model 640000 Padded Trunk features a hard-wearing, cordura-covered, thickly-padded bench-style seating surface. The Model 640020 Boat Seat On Trunk further ups the comfort factor with Frabill’s popular Boat Seat – a padded, folding, swiveling throne that makes sitting (and fishing) an easy, all-day prospect.
