Stockingfoot waders ?

9 posts in this topic

I was just wondering if anyone here has used stockingfoot waders for duck hunting? Seems like they might be a little easier to walk in, any comments?

I've hunted with guys that have used them. The bigest problem is cold feet due to lack of insulation in the "shoes" that you wear over the waders. The laces also can get very mucked up and tying/untying can be tough.

My .02 go with boot foot waders!

Look around for some neoprene boot foots. If you buy them in the 5mil thickness they should be warm, and then just wear warm wool socks. Make sure you buy them large enough.
Stocking foot neoprenes would surely work fine but do NOT get the felt sole wading boots. You will be on your a-- before you know it when you try to walk on mud!!

I used stocking foot neoprenes with rubber soled shoes a couple of years. They worked fine, they were pretty snug thought & the stocking feet in general made them harder to get on & off.

Hey guys I need your HELP.

I need a pair of chest waders or hip boots but can't find any. Mine are about 15 years old and full of patches.

Problem is - They need to be in foot size 17

That's right size 17. I've searched the internet but haven't had any luck. Anybody know of any large size waders??????

I see why you go by "FOOT" grin.gif

Do you even sink in the muck with feet like that?

Wow, size 17. My Hodgman dealer catalog only lists boot sizes up to 14's and that's only a couple style of waders. You might be able to find some 3XL or 4XL stockingfoot waders but unless you are built pretty big in the waist & chest you'll have a lot of extra material to have to deal with. Hope you can find something. Ed

TV Boy, yes I still sink in the mud and don't worry I've heard just about every joke and comment about feet over the years. Now I just let them run off by back like water on a duck.
LaCrosse use to custom build me waders but since they got bought out they no longer custom make waders.

Fisher Ed, was the 4XL stocking foot waders
from Hodgman ?????? If I can find them to fit my feet I'll make them do.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
