I have a pair of non-insulated that I use for early season and then when the below freezing temps hit I switch to my 1200 gram. Your feet might get a little warm using the 1200 gram early season but it shouldn't be too bad. My 1200 gram will keep the feet warm in the teens temps if I'm moving a little bit.

I used non-insulated boots till about 20 degrees. As it got colder I wore wool socks with a poly pro liner. I am a warm person and my feet sweat even in below zero (too much info?!?). If you're an average person or get cold easily then the 800-1200 gram boots may be necessary. Once it got real cold I was wearing pak boots anyway.

I just bought two pairs of boots. One non-insulated pair and one 1200-gram. I got them for a great price -- they were last year's model. If you look around you can find some deals.

Yeah, I sorta bought the two and didn't tell her. When she saw them I told her of my, "heck of a deal."

Sometimes it works. Mostly not. wink.gifgrin.gifcool.gif

Hey Fishin58 I thought you had them deer down there trained. I doubt that Roger ever used any rubber boots his velcro's did the trick just fine.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      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.
