Fashion goes out the window when it comes to staying warm. 

 

Fashion is for the cabelas crowd. 

 

You want ant to learn how to stay warm, go to where it's cold. Ely, I-falls, baudette, etc.

As fun as the times are bringing out the wife and kids, they also aren't nearly as much out as Dad which makes spending big bucks on footwear hard to do for us.  If you have the money yeah spend couple hundred on really good stuff.  Otherwise $7 felt inserts in the standard boots owned by most, and a really good pair of $25 wool socks with a polyester dress sock under that to help wick moisture has worked for my family really well.  Never had a complaint on cold feet yet and all for less than $40.

If I had decent internet I could post the clip for you.  You'll just have to settle for a hint.  I know you'll figure it out. :P:P

This is another thing that might help the wives enjoy the outdoors a little more.  This actually is my wife's.  She'll try it this weekend for the first time.

 

Don't worry - I didn't buy it - she won it at her company Christmas party a couple years ago.  I've eyed it MANY times though!  I just wouldn't ask to use it.  When we took it out of the box last night to check/charge the battery she says "I don't know why you haven't used it yet" :confused:  

 

The battery only needed a few minutes to top off.

 

I can't think of the last significant state of the art sporting goods item I've paid full retail price on.  It's always a leveraged purchase of at least clearance sale pricing but usually with gift cards, gift cash, or CC points, and sometimes used gear. 

 

Why am I feeling defensive?  A guy asks a question and we try to help out... :cool:

Had a neck of a time finding boots for Andrea. She has small feet, size 6 I think. Not a ton of options at our local sporting good stoors. Ended up getting a pair of Lacrosse 800 hunting type boots. These paired with good socks has kept her feet warm so far.

Pretty sure there are some thermacell insoles that are bluetooth and can be controlled by your phone.   Thats according to Lee and Tiffany on the outdoor channel.

My wife wears Blizzard Stalkers and loves them with the Yak tracks for ice fishing.

 

If fact, she wore them the past two mornings to shovel the sidewalks, decks, and the driveway too.  I am blessed.

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!

Cliff

 

On my third season with the predator extremes and have never had cold feet! Between working outside in the winter and ice fishing I've had a lot of boots and these are the best I've tried! even when you're on the move, when you're feet get sweaty, these boots keep your feet dry and warm. Couldn't recommend enough.

I agree with Finns, Hoey.  Get her any boot she wants.

 You have to buy her these because she'd never pick them out herself.  Get the white ones.

      Last year was the first time that I remember seeing any plowed roads out of the west end. I agree about chains making a huge difference on ATVs, but not if the snow is deep. Sleds ride on the snow. ATVs need to get down to the ice or packed snow.   It has been a while since I have heard of any guides setting out sleepers. If one did, they would need to do some good advertising to make it worth it.

      And all of them the same size. Like they came right from Morey's!  😄

      First year I put it out I went 3 miles out from the closest plowed road.  Used the lake snowmobile trail for a few miles, then packed my own trail before dragging it out.  Slush could be a problem but you could do the same thing (pack a trail with your sled the night before and let it freeze overnight).  Portables are much easier to move, but not as comfortable as a wood house.   Vermilion Ice Conditions - heard there was still open water on Big Bay Thursday and Friday.  Not sure if I will go out 7 days from now.

      Happy Holidays Muskies !! I've been off sight for a long while. My Son died in July at 45 from a heat stroke while working in Knoxville Tn. I've had a hard time with that.  We did not make our fall trip to Rainy Lake, and the effects of it all are felt now.  How was the fall ?  A friend with a guide service there told me I didn't miss anything, and the lack of post tend to support that. We appreciate all post and fishing chatter shared on this forum and especially all you share. Best wishes for a great winter. CHEERS to all !!
