Who let's their wife or girlfriend go out on the ice with them? lol I do! What kind of boots would work best for a cold footed gal like mine? She has an old pair of el cheapo's and I need to get a new pair for her. 
 

How about the guys? What are you wearing?

Lacrosse hunt pac for us. They only come in men's, but I got her the smallest size they come in (8). A little big for her but she just wears thicker socks.

 

We both used to get cold feet - these boots are crazy warm. Only complaint is they are pretty bulky, but it's a small price to pay for warm feet.

I am wearing a pair of cabelas breaks boots with 1200 grams of insulation. I had a pair Irish setters but I wore the bottom off after 12 years. It sucks having huge feet.

 

for your lady it comes down to will she be walking in them or sitting? If she will be mostly sitting and fishing a pack boot like my brother got with 2000 grams of insulation

I wear lacrosse ice kings. Warmest boots I have ever owned. They might make a version for women.

 

Yes they do make then for Women. My wife has them and I have the Ice Kings. Great for all day on the ice or below sledding.

Cabela's Predator Extreme!

Warmest boot that I have ever worn!

Get 1 size larger then you usually wear! Bulky but very warm while sitting on the ice or deer stand!

Steager Muclucs are by far the best I have ever owned. Right now I'm wearing Muc Boots arctic sports with a thermacell liner for those break the chill moment. 

 

I have purchased the thermacell for my daughter as well. Increased the enjoyment of hunting/ice fishing x100

Just picked up a pair of these a couple weeks ago.  On sale, $60 off retail.  Pretty happy with them and haven't even thought about my feet when wearing them.  I expected them to feel a little clunky but took the chance.  I don't think they're clunky at all.  I've pulled my ice gear for hundreds of yards and the only problem I had was having a rub at the top of the liner on my leg due to not having high enough socks on.  I cured that problem, now all is well.  Cliff is right, get 1 size larger than you normally would.  

 

A woman recommended these boots to me if that tells you anything you want to know.

Mukluks have been my favorite in the past too.  I bought my wife a pair but she doesn't move around enough when fishing outside to make them work like they should.

 

I also went the Thermacell route a couple years ago for my insulated rubber boots for wet conditions.  It's really nice to click em on with the remote and get toasty toes again.  A great option for staying warm in smaller, less insulated boots.

 

I bought the PAC boots noted above partly because I lost track of the Thermacells after our move.  But like usual, I found them again two days after in my fishing coat that I hadn't worn this season yet!

Instant 100 or 110deg heated insoles with the tap of a button. IMG_4456.JPG

 

the only problem is if you loose the remote your up a creek. Each pair of insoles is paired to a remote at the factory. Lose one the other is worthless. 

 

I use them primarily for my waders in the fall, but they are great for when your sitting still in the deerstand or fishhouse too. And easy to shut off when your active.

It's so you and everyone around you can have a set and only control your own. If they went to a cheaper radio remote system then only one person in the house would have control of everyone else.

There is a less expensive model that doesn't use a remote but you have to obviously take your boot off to turn it off/on.  I didn't want to do that even though they're thermostatically controlled.

 

I wanted to be able to manage the battery life better with the remote.

 

Funny thing was I never lost track of the remote - just the insoles for a while!!!

Lol yeah I can see us losing that dang thing, but maybe not. I think buying something like that would make you keep track of it lol.  She does have a bad case of cold feet, maybe the insoles would be better than any boot could do for her anyways.

I bought the black pair at least 2 years ago, shortly after they hit the market.  I think there were 3 different models ranging from $99 - $179 if memory serves.  Non remote, remote with on/off (Neighbor guys), remote with high/low/no heat and removable batteries (the black ones I posted).

 

Not sure what might've changed in the past couple years but that's what I remember.

Nothing says I Love You better than expensive gifts. :D  They'll like 'em.

 

They might even like them better than some jewelry!  Maybe not diamonds though.

      Very, very few ducks in Ely today.  4 grouse seen with only 1 coming back to camp.   I literally saw more fish today than birds.  And I skipped the fishing gear this time! 😒
    • monstermoose78
      Finn and I hiked the river in Sherburne and only saw 5 swans. 1000 cranes and not one duck or goose.  Saw some guys looking in the grass and they said they dropped a woodduck and Finn found it for them. Boy Finn was mad when I gave them the duck.

      Fished Black Brook Flowage (Apple River) today. This is my kinda lake! Very few houses, small little boat launch. Only caught 2 little pike. Missed a small Muskie, and seen a mid 30’s hovering under the boat. Was tough dealing with the wind, but I like this place. Fishing below the dam with waders is a possibility also. 
    • Wanderer
      I’d like to know what you have also.

      On the south end...  A really good week of fall walleye fishing.  Big numbers of fish being caught.  It should only improve as water temps get cooler.  This fall has been unseasonably warm. Big numbers of walleyes and saugers are set up along the south shore and anglers are catching a lot of fish.   Most anglers are anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner.  Live shiners are available and effective.  There are still a lot of walleyes being caught on spinners with minnows surprisingly.  Trolling crankbaits has also been catching a lot of fish. The best reports are coming from 18-28 feet of water across the south shore in areas such as Pine Island, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach, Long Point and Rocky Point.  Various schools within these depths.  In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, jumbo perch, sturgeon and even a few crappies are in the mix for walleye anglers.  On the Rainy River...   Emerald shiners continue to run in the Rainy River and more and more walleyes are entering the river each week.  Fishing has picked up but most believe when water temps reach the 40's, it will get even better.  Currently, temps are in the low 50's. Jigging with a frozen or live shiner, is the go to method.  Emerald shiners are tough to beat this time of year.  Some reports of big fish being caught, but not in big numbers... yet.   Sturgeon activity continues good.  A gob of crawlers and/or frozen shiners on a sturgeon rig (18 inch leader made of 60lb test, circle hook and a 2-3 ounce no roll sinker) is the ticket.  The catch and release season continues through April 23, 2022. Up at the NW Angle...   Fall fishing up at the Angle continues to be excellent.  Most anglers are using a jig and minnow or jig and plastic.  Some strong reports with warmer than normal water of spinners with a minnow or plastic being the hot bait.  Gold, pink and/or glow colored jigs and spinners are doing well.  Reminder, no live, frozen or dead bait being able to be transported over the border from the U.S. into Canada, consequently anglers boating into Ontario waters reporting various plastics on their jigs and spinners working great. Various areas of structure such as points, reefs and sandy areas in neck down areas continue to hold good fish.  12 - 26 feet is the range depending upon the spot.   Big crappies are in their fall spots and being caught on jigs and minnows in 25-30' around various structure. Muskie anglers report good fishing overall.  Trollers reporting mixed results.  One day is great, the other not so much.  Covering water trolling is a strong fall muskie technique and should get better as water cools.    Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.   Charter boat transport and float planes are still available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air.
