Never heard or seen anything like that. I guess that's what you meant by the cool foot?, what's the benefit over a standard pedal?

I just made my own. When you fish barefoot a lot they're nice.

I used to feel the same way, but once I tried it for a while I learned to love it. Now I don't even wear shoes in a boat when it's cold out, I just wear some wool socks.

Yep.  But there's no chance I'll do it.  Step on a musky bait or fly just once...

Looks great!  I made the tray for my dad's boat. One benefit of working in a fab shop! Cool foot looks great as well! Nice work

Bare feet and hooks aren't a good combo.

Looks cool!

Thanks!

 

I've avoided hooks, but I did have my partner step on my bare foot once, and he was wearing boots and weighs over 200 lbs. I'd rather step on a treble than have that happen again. It ripped one of my little toenails right off.

What did you use to make your "Cool Foot"?

That's a foam bath mat that I got at Wal-Mart for $6. I have two bass boats and I wanted a cool foot in both of them, but the cheap skate in me wouldn't allow me to pay $60 for two cool foots. :lol: 

 

The mat was big enough for two easily, and I used some two sided tape to hold them in place. I wasn't sure that tape would hold up, but after a few trips it's still holding well.

I worry about that too.  The interior of my boat is the polymer-vinyl-nonskid material so I generally do not leave anything laying around anyways plus my dog is often in the boat too.  Shoes, sandals, boots, sure.  Barefoot?  Nope.
