Ice Fishing Boats

5 posts in this topic

That won't be enough insulation if you don't keep moving. Get battery-operated socks if you get boots that light. I bring along a carpet remnant to sit my feet on. Makes a big difference. Best all-around are pac-style boots like LaCrosse Iceman, Sorels, etc. If you get em big enough for two pairs of socks with room to move your toes around, you'll stay warm.

I am looking at getting a new pair of boots for ice fishing this winter and am wondering about what would be the best kind to get? I perfer to sit outside when fishing but when it get too cold I would move inside?
Would 1000 grams of Thinsulate™ Ultra Insulation be sufficient to keep my feet toasty? I heard that having your feet higher off the ground is also something to consider.
Any advice would be appreciated?

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
