Here is a nice waterproof shell from REI...

Raingear should be part of your gear for any trip. You can use it as your top layer.. On offshore trips it can be cold and foggy at times.. a layer of polartech (fleece) topped by a shell will keep you warm and dry....

Tight lines.. JEff

Jeff, I have a similar parka from Cabelas. Are bibs/pants required?

I have a jacket (with hood) and pair of pants by Marmot, from REI, that is mostly breathable and supposed to be waterproof. They're unlined, just a shell, so they are lightweight and usually provide enough protection for fishing in the rain. All fits over whatever I usually wear.

These are not the heavy duty ones the deckhands have. I always take them along, seldom use them but have them when needed. I can put in more rail time and still be comfortable, nothing bad about that.

Depends on the weather. Frogg Toggs are great, especially for hot climates and skiff trips but if the boat is on the sea achor in 40MPH wionds and bow spray is soaking everyone and everything...then a pair of lightweight slickers or two pc rainsuit (Costco?) is better because of the salt build-up. Neither take much room.
