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?

    • Little late to the answers, but I switched over to NAP KILLZONE and could not be happier.  They are the cats meow.  I like them better than the Rage I was shooting before.  The pictures are from a doe I shot at 13 yards.  Needless to say she didn't go more than 30 yards before she piled up.
    • The whole reason behind getting a new bow is that my 17 year old son is now standing 6'3" and the little bear bow he has is too small for him.  He likes to bow hunt, but with sports and school activities he doesn't get out a ton, so i am going to crank down the poundage on my Elite and he wants to shoot that.  So Dad is in the market for a new bow.  I can't say a bad word about the Elite, its been a great bow for me.  I have always shot a double cam bow and was just looking for opinions about what other folks like.  Not sure if a solo cam will be smoother with the draw or not.  Soon as I have time, I want to get out and shoot some bows and see what I like.
    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
