Fishing Umbrella for boat in summer heat

I am looking for a umbrella to put on my boat for summer fishing. Do any of you guys have one you really like?

I have the back of the seat mount umbrella from cabelas that was around thirty dollars. Got two of them, front and back seats. It does a fair job of blocking the sun, given it's size. Be careful when it's windy! I leaned forward to pick something up of the floor, without my back against the chair the chair closed on me! Would say its still worth it to block the sun.

I have one of the seat back umbrellas. It is too small and pretty much useless except for when the sun is directly overhead. I rigged a large beach umbrella, it is much better.

Here is the best one on the market from what I read and what others say but it cost $270.00 and man that is a lot of money for an umbrella.

Ray, I really like that umbrella, but when you start talking 2 of them, wife and I, it gets a little expensive.

I think I like the one at Cabela's due to price. Need to study it more.

A flat is just as it sounds. This is an area of shallow water that has no defined drop into deeper water. The water depth is uniform or gets deeper very gradually. Flats can be found at the backs of all the bays, in coves within the bays and on the main lake where the flat land adjacent to the river was covered up by water when the rivers were backed up by damming.
