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!

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
