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).

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
