Default Ice fishing bibs.

I'm deciding on some new bibs for next season. I'd love to hear what everyone's using, pros-cons, etc....for me it's between Cabela's Guide Pro late seasons or one of the Striker models. Thanks.

If you know someone who can bring them up from the states for you, frabills can be bought ridiculously cheap and shipped to a U.S address. I donít know if theyíre as good as cabelas guidewear since Iíve never even tried on the guidewear, but the fishinghole does carry them though so you could check them out.

Nice, I plan on checking those out too. My gortex shell from the 90s is finally leaking

I own Stryker Predators, best money I've ever spent on ice gear.

So let me get this straight,,,, go check out the frabills at the fishin hole,,,, and then buy them from an American source and have someone bring them up for you so as to avoid shipping, gst and duty.

Good thing there is still a Canadian owned shop to check out the merchandise on before you buy from American source online.

Another vote for these. The Fishn'hole had a wicked sale on them last month.

You're supposed to be buying a flasher 2 alarm
You want to catch whitefish you need knock off carharts from peavy mart and a good set of goat wrangler boots. They have a good selection of those at peavy as well.

I've spent thousands at the fishinghole over the years and will continue to give them my patronage, but I'm not paying double the cost for a set of bibs and a jacket. I have no problem paying a bit more, but 100% more isn't in my budget nor should it reasonably be expected to be.

If someone goes there to check out the bibs, if they're anything like me, they'll spend a hundred dollars on lures regardless of what they went in for.
