Strikemaster Clothing question

2 posts in this topic

I am looking at getting some new ice fishing attire and noticed the strikemaster stuff. How does it compare? Would it be waterproof enough to use as rain gear during the cold soft water rainy days? I am looking for a multipurpose purchase. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure yet how it compares, but decided to take a chance on the parka (they were selling for $50 at the Big Lake fishing contest). They were out of bibs in my size though, so I'll have to wait until next year. I don't think it's 100% water-proof, but I'm going to use some tent water-proofing spray on mine and see how it does. BTW, I bought it thinking the same thing as you (dual purpose).

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
