The Cold Plunge

Recommended Posts

walleyedan

This was a classic. I was out fishing with my Dad, his friend Bruce and Tim Hanske (who is one of our regular guides). Before we wet a line this afternoon, I asked Tim if he would jump in the drink with his Arctic Armor suit if he caught a 28" or larger walleye. He agreed without hesitation and sure enough he caught a fat 28 incher. He held to his word and made the plunge holding the walleye as he floated. Got to love it!

Awesome story. cool.gif How about if I catch a 33+" I will jump in AND buy one of those suits!

You'll have to take some pictures next time.

Deal, but buy the suit first. I am due to have a 33 plus take a look at the inside of my boat, it's been a long time. But.......we have had a 27 and 2-28's in the last 3 days. Maybe da turdy pound walleye will bite tomorrow.

walleyedan, since I went and stood in the rain and didn't get wet, last sunday I took the plunge off the dock to see if float. Now I think my wife has started plan to put me away in a soft room someplace far,far away. shocked.gifconfused.gif

Moby,

If you go in the drink and the water temp is in the 40's or colder, you will get cold but when and if you get out your body heat will end up warming the water on the inside of the suit. I had this happen last year when we did the true test in icy waters. The suits are phenomenal, I've been wearing the new camo and I love it.

So do the suits pretty much seal up at the ankle and cuff or how do they work? I would imagine water would be able to come in from those locations. I am wanting to buy one but would like to know more about it.

Thanks,

Tom

Tom, there is a tight fit at the ancles and wrist, but I dont feel its tight enough to be water tight. You are going to get wet... but I think its one of them things that like Dan said, your body heat will warm that water pretty quick. I dont thin you will want to stay wet long, but it will keep you alive to be able to get out of the water. The way I look at it... You need a warm suit for ice fishing anyway, not a bad thing if it floats as well..

Dan.. how on earth do you not have a camera ready when this guy is floating with a walleye? I'm dissapointed!

You can now see the video on our site, click on the Arctic Armor logo on our front page (walleyedan.com). She was caught in pretty deep water and did not ever come around unfortunately.

I got mine last week and it's great!! I wore it for the first time last night and kept me real warm. Can't wait for the ice to give it a try there.

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      My yard!! Lol packing things away today. Getting ready for summer Be a great day to get out though.

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      By the landing yet it is.

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
