Description and Application: Keep mosquitoes away without sticky sprays that can ruin gear and turn off fish. The Thermacell MR300 Portable Mosquito Repeller is designed specifically for anglers. The powerful heat-activated repellent creates a 15-foot mosquito protection zone. Unlike DEET, Thermacell doesn’t damage equipment—or skin. It can be taken virtually anywhere outdoors, stopping mosquitoes in the air before they can bite or bother you. The clamp allows you to mount the unit on nearby surfaces, like boat rails, dashes, rod holders, and more. It also comes with a belt clip so it’s always with you when you need it.
Staff Perspective: Fact: The mosquitos in Minnesota are so big, they have ticks hanging off of ‘em—and they’re always angry. What we love to do as anglers is be outside, whether that’s rigging rods for tomorrow’s outing or fishing until, or just after dark. Having some sort of effective mosquito deterrent is a challenge—in fact most bug sprays are mere low-fat salad dressings for our Up-North skeeters … But Thermacell works. This kit takes angler interest and integrates into an already great product. Plus, I love the Mossy Oak Elements pattern it comes in. Get one, get three—just don’t go fishing during twilight without it.
