Ice fishing boots?

14 posts in this topic

I'm looking for some warm waterproof ice fishing boots. Anyone know of some good boots or anything about Georgia Boots?

I love my icekings, I always bought the cheaper boots and froze my feet, 10 years ago I decided to go all out and spend some money and bought the Lacross Icekings (still wear them today), and haven't a had cold feet since. They aren't the most waterproof boots, but then again when I have them on there isn't much water around. I think Lacross is the way to go for boots.

Rocky Blizzards love them. Wear them all day long, there not as bulky as the pac boots.

Another vote for LaCrosse Ice Kings. Hunting, Icefishing or shoveling the driveway, always dependable, always warm, always dry...exactly what I am looking for. I bought mine from Dunhams in the spring of the year for about $75. I have had them for about 3 years and they have never disappointed.

Take care,

Them good ole mickey mouse boots that you can get at most likely any military surplus store. They are by FAR the best boots I have had yet. And if your feet get cold (barely ever happens) just dump some hot water in the boot and dump it out and dry it with a towel and there ya go, a warm boot again. Thats what I like the most about them.

They are 100% water proof. They cost around $100 and they accept trade-in of a old pair. I have had these for about 5 years now.

I use them mainly for snowmobiling and ice fishing. While ice fishing I have had my whole boot frozen on the outside with ice and on the inside my feet are sweating. Now that is some darn good insulation!

You can use them for other things too, like hunting or 4-wheeling. If you wanted to you could wear these boot all year around! In the summer your feet don't get overly hot either. But I normally only use these boots mainly for walking in mud in the summer b/c I don't really like wearing boots in the summer anyways.

Overall, these boots are the way to go!

Ice Kings for me. Have a pair I got over 8 years ago and they still work great. I bought a new pair at G.M. last year for $45 I think . Little bulky but your feets wont get cold. I melt Snoe Seal on them once a year and the snow just falls off. Dry the liners every day and you will have no worrys.
A friend bought the Rocky Ice Fishing Packs with the fold down cleats and he likes them too.

I'll stand behind my Ice Kings (Lacross). Your feet will not get cold in these boots.

They are pretty bulky, but very light for thier size so one can still maneuver comfortably. The only downfall I have found to them is its nearly impossible to drive some vehicles with them (I have size 13 feet).

I have friends that use military pack boots .. but I can remember too many occasions where thier feet got wet and cold, which ended the fishing trip each time.

I have to second Dave's opinion on the Ice Kings being VERY large. I have a pair, also 13's and I really like them, but I haven't found creepers or chains that fit on them. In Escanaba we don't usually have snow on the ice until late January, so the Kings stay on the shelf until then. Last year I put about 2 dozen sheet metal screws into the bottom of my packs and it worked like a charm for the glare ice!

I found rubber pull over cleats at Wal-Mart for my size 15 Ice Kings. Like 6 bucks.

Size 15 must be a pain to look for sometimes. I got size 13 in my army reserve boots and they are huge. I cant imagine what a 15 looks like.

Instead of getting some cleats. Because the good kinds in my size are so scarce. I just screwed some sheet metal screws into my boots and that was the best traction on glare ice I could of had!

Ya I dont fall into too many holes! They get heavy. I could have got into a 14 but the extra room keeps air moving and warmth in. Tire chains, good idea! He He!

    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.

    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
