Strikemaster glide lite sled mod

Recommended Posts

anyone attempt to modify the sled to accept some sort of removable/portable wind break? Thinking about tearing into one, but figured I would ask before I get crazy with it! lol

For the asking price of a Glidelite ($80) you are most of the way into getting the smallest and cheapest portable fishhouse. If you are thrifty and do some serious sale searching, they can be had for less than $150 new.

Agreed McGurk, like the basic Frabill Recon for instance. Light and you gain the wind protection.

Yet I like the compact methodology of the StrikeMaster sled, it has it's place for many.

I think the modded one by Rod in the link far -i posted is great. I love how he can just set it inside the fish trap scout he has and strap it in. Great mod I thought. I also liked the flasher and camera mounted on it!

I agree hamms that is sweet!! I think if you did just that to the glide light like he did that would be perfect for early and late season with no house needed!

This was by far, my favorite addition to a StrikeMaster Glide Lite Sled.

No...Bummer too. They tried to leave from the twin cities in that storm at 5:00 AM that Saturday, and after 15 miles and 2 1/2 hours latter, they gave up and were forced to turned back.

Bummer...but safety first. I'm happy they made it back home safely.

We have plans to host them again. Disappointing for all concerned, but they gave me a Rain Check on a future appearance.

I'll let you know when it looks like a go.

Would you classify that addition as a rod holder?

Ya....that works..and Maybe, the addition would fall in the category of a "Heater" too?

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
