Holiday Buyer's Guide: Best Rain Gear

Tired of getting wet every time it rains? Let us help you choose the best rain gear for your needs with this comparison of a variety of brands. We break down which rain gear is better for different climates and conditions. 

Favorite Rain Gear...

1) Aftco Anydrous Jacket: http://bit.ly/2uIWf5V
     Aftco Anhydrous Bib: http://bit.ly/2xxLDbW
 

The Anhydrous shines in warmer climates or when layering is an option. We effectively fished in this suit from warm afternoon storms down to rain/snow mix without any issues. Its extremely dry and allows plenty of room for layering with your favorite undergarments. See below for a list of apparel we use for layering. 

2) Gill FG21 Rain Jacket: http://bit.ly/2lfXB6Z
    Gill FG25 Insulated Tournament Bibs: http://bit.ly/2A4r9ME

The Gill Suit is extremely warm and well thought out. After several years of intense testing we feel this suit is best suited when the cooler storms roll in. We love this suit when temps dip below 50 degrees and it continues to shine the colder it gets. 

3) Frog Toggs DriDucks Rain Suit: http://bit.ly/2AN8XmZ

The Frog Toggs suit is essentially added insurance. At less than 20 bucks, this is the suit we throw in the back compartment and forget about. They're extremely light weight, take virtually no space to store, and will be there in a pinch if you want to keep the majority of the rain off you as you make a mad dash back to the truck. If you're a bank fisherman this is also a great option because it is light and can be stuffed into a backpack easily. 

_____________________________________________________

Does your old rain gear need to be refreshed? Sometimes gear needs to be replaced but a lot of gear can be saved with proper washing and reapplication of waterproofer. We've used these 2 products together to successfully get another season out of fading gear. 

ReviveX Synthetic Fabric Cleaner: http://bit.ly/2zKLPbD
ReviveX Waterproofing Soak: http://bit.ly/2ANadGJ

Layering/Base Layers...
UnderArmor Base 2.0 Crew: http://bit.ly/2hxD0Yc
Aftco Horizon Sweater Fleece: http://bit.ly/2gTC1oB

With rain comes the need to take care of your tackle. There is nothing worse than getting home, getting dry and forgetting all about the wet boat only to return later to find your tackle completely rusted and ruined! Below is a list of the waterproof boxes we use to keep our gear safe in the rain and a unique product that will help keep the moisture away as well. 

Bass Mafia Bait Coffin: http://bit.ly/2gGGxpa
Bass Mafia Bait Casket: http://bit.ly/2fg5ouM
Plano Waterproof Stowaway Deep: http://bit.ly/2xjccls
Plano Waterproof Stowaway: http://bit.ly/2fvjcFB

$200,000 Yacht Sunk To The Bottom!! (Coast Guard Called)

You never know what you're going to see when fishing!!! We noticed the oil slick, then the life jackets, then the yacht! Once the Coast Guard arrived we gave them the room to work but we hope this worked out for the boat owners! 

Let this serve as a reminder to all of us! Regular boat maintenance is so important! In your bass boat, here are some quick items you can change to ensure that your boat isn't taking on water. Don't let those minor leaks go unchecked. We've had to raise a bass boat off the lake bottom in the past and its not easy!

Drain Plug- http://bit.ly/2wN7O0b
Remote Plug System- http://bit.ly/2jkZqjS
Livewell Pump- http://bit.ly/2iPRaEu
Bilge Pump (With Float for automatic bilge)- http://bit.ly/2zDfRMh

If you happen to remember that we were fishing in the beginning of the video here is the gear we were using. And if you were wondering what on earth we were doing... 30 foot visibility and Tim's fish had a follower chasing it around... we were after that double hook up.

We forget how dangerous the water can be. Boats sink all the time and we need to be more aware of the dangers. Always wear your safety equipment, carry the tools and equipment to keep you and your passengers safe, and always keep an eye out to help others that may be in distress.
