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.

      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.

      Minnesota’s waterways were unusually deadly this year, with 17 people losing their lives in boating-related drownings and crashes—the highest number since 2005. And with weeks of open water left this year, there’s a chance that total could climb higher.Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Kind of a similar thing and how I got into hunting. It was more of a forgotten item though. I went fishing the St, Frances river by Zimmer with my dad when I was about 16. Some duck hunter had forgotten his hunting ammo box-seat packed full of shells. I didnt have a shot gun but my buddy had an old H&R single 12g. We went up by Cambridge and spent a good part of the day blowing up a few $100s worth of shells at trees and craap! 😁
