Cabelas polar cap pac boots

Question

Seabass77

Does anyone own these boots? know anything about them ? I noticed that they are rated to -100 degrees but it doesn't mention how much thinsulate(if any) there is . Are they comfortable?

Seabass77,

Haven't tried the Cabela boots but I sure recommend the LaCrosse Ice King boots. All I wear ice fishing or sledding are some white cotton socks and my feet are warm all day. They are a little on the heavy side but VERY warm and durable.

I second the opinion on Lacrosse boots. Have always had a problem with my feet getting cold. Bought Lacrosse Snow Kings last year (-140 rating). Very comfortable, very warm. Only complaint is that I can't drive with them on. Too big to operate pedals on my manual tranny.

Last year at the Ice Fishing show in St. Paul there were about 3 booths with really cheap clearance boots, but they sold out by mid-day Saturday so get there early.

Jeff King told me he would wear them even if Cabela's was not his sponsor. Jeff is a three time Iditarod winner (finished 3rd last year). I've had several opportunities to talk with him and have learned some good stuff for living in Minnesota during winter.

About Alaska he said, "You don't learn from your mistakes, you die by them."

Clayton,
I may be mistaken but I think you are talking about the trans alaskan III's...

Seabass -- You are quite right. I should have checked the catalog first.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
