Hodgeman wader repair

5 posts in this topic

I've got a pair of Hodgeman slipper waders, the brown ones. Pulling docks this past weekend, I got scraped pretty good to put a tear in the waders. Anyone know what type of patch material could be used? It's a very small hole but does leak.

I have a pair of Hodgman waders and they came w/ a little tube of "repair cement" of some kind. Do you still have the box you bought them around? I would bet if you do, the little tube of repair cement would do the trick. Or, contact Hodgman on the web doing a search for their contact info/website...

Neoprene or rubber? If there neoprene I have used marine goo as well as silicone caulk with good success.

Neoprene. I didn't purchase them new, so no box or repair tube. I just tried some marine goo last night, see how that works.

A friend of mine has several old neoprene wet suits that he sacraficed to use as patches. If the marine goo alone doesn't work, I'll try applying a patch by Goo'ing both sides and pressing together. Apparenetly he's had real good luck with that.

Thanks for the suggestions.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
