I’m going to set myself for ridicule by saying that I’m a lifetime resident of New York, but I’ve probably only fished Champlain about 10 times. Now before you pummel me with stones, understand that I’m about 4 hours away from Ticonderoga and that Plattsburgh is an hour further. The fact that I’m less than two hours from Cayuga, Oneida, Ontario, St. Lawrence River, and only 3 hours from Lake Erie, should help explain a bit why I haven’t made the trip more often. However, I recently learned that the water temp there was in the middle to upper 50s last week, which would put it about 10-15 degrees ahead of my more traditional fishing spots in Central New York, and means that prespawn jerkbait bite should be HOT. So we packed up the boat, and headed up.

CUSTOMER PRODUCT REVIEW By Big J SOURCE
I like this jacket for a colder weather jacket it seems to run a little larger than the Stryker jacket so you have some extra room to throw an extra sweatshirt under it. Put it this way I wore this jacket this past February in 10-20* weather with stiff 20-30 mile per hour wind and I was the only one toasty warm while we were ice fishing in Maine!

“I recently had the opportunity to test the new STORMR STRYKR suit and to say it is off the charts in every regard is an understatement. This just may be the ultimate in cold weather foul weather suits in fishing. Not only does it provide a dry, comfortable fit but it very well could be the warmest I have worn too.”

STORMR Strykr Review
“I have been on the search for the perfect winter hunting/ fishing/ fowl weather jacket for over 20 years and have spent way too much money trying to find the holy grail. Most jackets either don’t breath, are too heavy especially when wet or I sweat to death in them. The Stormr Stryker Jacket has been a perfect match for my uses. I bought it for a guided 3 day steely trip down the Deschutes river. We had 60 mph gusts and at least 40 mph sustained winds with rain most of the trip (epic) and I will say had I not had the Stormr Stryker it would have been a miserable trip. Fact is I was very comfortable the entire time. Warm and dry catching fish. Our guide was awesome and he loved the jacket. Wading in any river always adds a bit of stress but knowing I had an extra bit of flotation in the jacket (5 lbs according to website, not a replacement for approved flotation devices) gave me an extra bit of confidence. When I got home my friends were surprised that we even stayed on the river with weather that bad. The next chance I had to wear the jacket was my wife and I’s 4 mile walk one evening. It was 36 degrees, windy with lite rain/sleet. She didn’t want to go but I convinced her (she didn’t know I had a secret weapon against the weather). As we walked she got really cold. I let her wear my Stormr and she instantly fell in love with it. Warm and dry even though we were walking briskly. She did eventually get hot because she had too many layers on underneath. A long sleeve T under the jacket would have been enough while moving. It does not wear heavy and fits true to size. I am 6’3 220lbs and the extra large was perfect. I ordered my wife the Typhoon which will be delivered today! Now I have to figure out what to do with all these other coats.”

I love to fish, but I hate being cold. I’ve spent years in Connecticut trying to find ways to keep warm. We all have problems with that, male or female. But sometimes being smaller than the guys also makes us more susceptible to the elements, and makes us more vulnerable to harsh conditions. Anyone who has spent time in the cold, wet fall of the Northeast can tell you that once you’re cold, you’re done. Game over.

Team STORMR member Greg Hackney finished 3rd this past weekend at the Bassmaster Elite Series Tournament at Table Rock Lake in Branson, MO. He weighed 60.15lbs over the four day event. When the weather calls for it, Hackney has been wearing our STRYKR series rain gear for the past two years.
Here is Greg’s initial reaction after using the gear for the first time at the 2013 Bassmaster Classic, which was one of the coldest Classics on record:
