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.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
