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.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
