I doubt it. Usually the body doesn't get cold, jut fingers and toes. Then again, if you are flexible enough, maybe you can get your hands and feet into your jacket.

I dont have one but they look nice. I just spent the money on extreme weather camo. I am plenty warm.

I bought one a few years ago and they are very warm. The year I bought it, was the deer season opener of -20F. I was able to stay in the stand that morning for 5 hours. Now the downfalls 1)too bulky to carry into the stand 2)very hard to put on without falling over, however I was putting on the booties that came with it 3)Since that opening morning, we haven't had that cold of weather.

I would not purchase another one. I would use that money to buy good quality bibs, jacket and boots.

I bought one about 8 years ago and although I don't use it every time out, it does help me to sit longer than I would without it. IMO, it is worth the money if you sit for 5-6 hours or more at a crack or if it is real cold. When we had that 15-20 below a few years ago I sat from sunrise till 3:00 PM and was just a little chilled. I have also used it bowhunting in late December and stayed toasty. It is a little bulky to get into but once in it I think it works good. I used a sleeping bag prior to buying this and that worked OK. The heater body suit works better though. If you stand sit for long periods I think you will like it. I usually haul it out to my stand the day before and hike out dressed light and pack in my coat. I would buy one again if the extra money was available.

I would agree that you should take a look at the Artic Armor wear. They have the red suit and the camo for hunting. I recieved my camo one today and put it on and was walking around outside to see how it fit and how it was when bending and so forth.

This will be a great addition to my hunting clothes. Check the suits out here

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article
