Footwear

Last year I wore Nike Shocks (love them), and fished bare foot. I was just wondering what you guys wear in the boat. Looking to get some new fishing kicks. My biggest concern is comfort after standing all day, but I also want breathable. Just curious to see what you guys are wearing...

I like sandals or bare foot.

A word of warning to anyone fishing from my boat....

Go Barefoot at your own risk. Footwear required by those under 10 y/o/a. If you know what I am saying....

Under Armour Mirage is what I bought for this year. Last year I wore some adidas vented shoes a lot like the nike shocks.

Merrel's. They have several different models that are great. I wear some waterproof ones until it gets really hot out, then gravitate towards sandals.

Every time I wore sandals last year I hooked my foot. Shoes from now on for me.

heavy duty crocs... they float (big plus) breathe, are comfortably and are only 40 bucks. Lasted 2 years so far and I abuse them. Even portaging in the BW with them!

Im also a fan of barefoot if you are careful and in a clean boat. Otherwise I just use nike tennis shoes with the padded inserts added into them

Are these the shoes you got, if so where did you get them? I was looking for some but wanted to try them on before buying a pair.

I use a pair of pool flip flops. No problem walking out in the water a ways if the ramp doesn't have a dock. Plus they float!

What?!? No one else fishes with Pradas? Muffy, Biff, and I don't set foot on the yacht without them.

Seriously, my daughter was up at some tanning salon for a UV treatment in December and there were these really light weight, mesh type slip ons. Style was a lot like a running shoe. Soles looked like they would grip fairly well. When I picked her up, I thought "Hey these would be nice out on the boat" Of course I cannot recall their name. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Paul

Chacos. They are really nice because they have a good comfortable sole with some arch support plus they are a sandle. They give you some crazy tan lines on your feet though.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
