Stockingfoot waders ?

Recommended Posts

DUCKBOAT21

I was just wondering if anyone here has used stockingfoot waders for duck hunting? Seems like they might be a little easier to walk in, any comments?

I've hunted with guys that have used them. The bigest problem is cold feet due to lack of insulation in the "shoes" that you wear over the waders. The laces also can get very mucked up and tying/untying can be tough.

My .02 go with boot foot waders!

Look around for some neoprene boot foots. If you buy them in the 5mil thickness they should be warm, and then just wear warm wool socks. Make sure you buy them large enough.
Stocking foot neoprenes would surely work fine but do NOT get the felt sole wading boots. You will be on your a-- before you know it when you try to walk on mud!!

I used stocking foot neoprenes with rubber soled shoes a couple of years. They worked fine, they were pretty snug thought & the stocking feet in general made them harder to get on & off.

FOOT

Hey guys I need your HELP.

I need a pair of chest waders or hip boots but can't find any. Mine are about 15 years old and full of patches.

Problem is - They need to be in foot size 17

That's right size 17. I've searched the internet but haven't had any luck. Anybody know of any large size waders??????

I see why you go by "FOOT" grin.gif

Do you even sink in the muck with feet like that?

Wow, size 17. My Hodgman dealer catalog only lists boot sizes up to 14's and that's only a couple style of waders. You might be able to find some 3XL or 4XL stockingfoot waders but unless you are built pretty big in the waist & chest you'll have a lot of extra material to have to deal with. Hope you can find something. Ed

FOOT

TV Boy, yes I still sink in the mud and don't worry I've heard just about every joke and comment about feet over the years. Now I just let them run off by back like water on a duck.
LaCrosse use to custom build me waders but since they got bought out they no longer custom make waders.

Fisher Ed, was the 4XL stocking foot waders
from Hodgman ?????? If I can find them to fit my feet I'll make them do.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
