Cheap quality Waders

9 posts in this topic

anyone know where i can find some cheap (under $100) but quality waders, prefably 5mm? I dont even care if they're used as long as they dont leak.

Just pick-up some brush busters from that store in Rogers for $99. My last ones lasted 10 years. I hang them in my basement over summer and they last a long time.

I cant think of the brand at this moment, but if your in a Cabela's its worth a look in the bargain cave. I scored a really nice pair of insulated camo waders for 85 bucks...these were easily 2 hundo new, only thing wrong was a cigarette burn on the inside...but they dont leak and they keep me very warm. It's worth a shot anyways. Good luck.

Fleet Farm usually has Hodgeman waders that are good and are at the price range you are looking for. Check Sportsman's Warehouse too

I'll second the Bargain Cave..I picked up a pair of Ducks Unlimited 5mm for $80...and they usually have a decent selection.

My bro buys the old fashioned rubber waders. They weigh a ton and you sweat like crazy in em. Maybe last a season and you throw them away the next season as they are all cracked up. But they are CHEAP! He found he could get a few years use by spraying them down regular with armor all. Keeps them from drying and cracking.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
