What waders?

Recommended Posts

Seabass77

There are so many choices of waders out there, I'm not sure what's right for my situation.

I will be hunting all different types of areas, mostly Minnesota. I don't have a dog to use either, so I will be doing a fair share of walking thru muck.

It seems there is not one pair of waders for all conditions, you will either have to be hot in early season or cold late in the year.

Canvas? (cabelas brush busters?) Neoprene? Breathable (cabelas dry-plus?)

Thanks for your help.

SEABASS,
I purchased the Brush Busters last year and I really like them. I had no problems late season keeping warm. My 2 cents

I like neoprene. If you do some walking just wear a pair of wader fleece pants underneath. I wear neoprenes for duck hunting and water trapping. In the boat and in and out of the truck. Dont sweat bad either. In early season they can be hot. I have the 5mm hodgemans I think. I have had the same pair for 4 seasons of hard use. But I always have a back - up pair with me.

Seabass--

Neoprenes are extremely tough when you get the thick ones. Protrapper mentioned that his are 5mm, which is what I use and recommend. The big drawback, as mentioned, is that they will be hot in warm weather. I have a pair of Cabela's Dry-Plus that are VERY nice for summer fishing or early waterfowling. They are durable and light. I've also worn these in cold weather with down-insulated underwear, which works out well. Either of these would be great choices.

Good Gunnin'

Has anyone tried these?

RedHead® Bone Dry® Hobbs Creek

I don't know anything about the redhead brand, I think it is Bass Pro Shops private label.

Go to the hodgman website. They have unbelieveabley low prices on discontinued camo patterns. My son has the chest high neoprene and I have the waist high. I would go with the chest high if I hunted alone. When the water gets too deep for me in goes the kid grin.gif When the kid outgrows them their mine grin.gif Ken

if you want a good pair of waders you can't go wrong with Rocky I have had mine for 4 years with no problem they are only 3.5 mm and have no trouble staying warm late in the season. And your best bet to get good waders at a reasonable price is Reeds in walker it is a hall but if you do during ther Muskie fever sale you can get some awesome prices i bought my waders for 50 on sale and they cost 145 normally. Just my thoughts

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
