Ice Fishing Boots

 My wife enjoys going fishing with me, along with riding ATV and other things, but she can't find a pair of boots to keep her feet warm.  I really don't struggle with that, but I know how miserable that makes things when your feet are cold.  Can anyone share suggestions on what their wives wear for boots or socks (even heated socks).  Thanks for any help!  We're going fishing for three days this weekend, so I'm trying to figure something out so she's not stuck in the wheelhouse while I'm out bouncing around with the portable.

My girlfriend wears the sorel caribous. She is always getting cold out fishing but since we got her these her feet have been much better paired with a pair of good wool socks. I think you can find them on sale online for around 80 bucks. They are also not too bulky which is a plus. hope this helps

 I've got the sorel glaciers. A bit on the bulky side, but they are good to -100. Ive never had cold feet, even in crazy cold temps.

Pick up a couple packs of those boot warmers for extra insurance. They are like the hand warmer packs, but made for boots. We have tried them at ice fishing tournaments and they work great. If you put the hand warmer ones in your boots your toes will probably get too hot.

Cabelas predator extreme pack boots, they are one of the warmest boots made and are a full lace-up boot so they offer a comfortable snug fit with good ankle support excellent for walking and standing for long periods of time, and the thermal liners have a pouch in the toe area for a toe warmer for the long all days sits in the tree stand

Mucks are awesome. Waterproof almost to the knee (think drilling holes convenience) and warm.

Is it impious to weigh goose music and art in the same scales? I think not, because the true hunter is merely a noncreative artist. Who painted the first picture on a bone in the caves of France? A hunter. Who alone in our modern life so thrills to the sight of living beauty that he will endure hunger and thirst and cold to feed his eye upon it? The hunter. Who wrote the great hunter's poem about the sheer wonder of the wind, the hail, and the snow, the stars, the lightnings, and the clouds, the lion, the deer, and the wild goat, the raven, the hawk, and the eagle, and above all the eulogy to the horse? Job, one of the great dramatic artists of all time. Poets sing and hunters scale the mountains primarily for one and the same reason--the thrill of beauty. Critics write and hunters outwit their game primarily for one and the same reason--to reduce that beauty to possession. The differences are largely matters of degree, consciousness, and that sly arbiter of the classification of human activities, language. If, then, we can live without goose music, we may as well do away with stars, or sunsets, or Iliads. But the point is we would be fools to do away with any of them.

My Wife swears by her Muck boots! I don't own any, so I am just passing this on. She uses them when she is doing Barn stuff so that would involve moving around. I'm sure that helps to keep your feet warm. She also swears by her Uggs. I have no idea why those can keep your feet warm, but she looks Cute in them! ; ) That's all I'm gonna say.

 Thanks guys!  

She wants to give the Sorel's a try.  Thanks Taylor!  I'm banking on Minot Scheels having them.....might be a long shot.  Not trying to bash anyone, but they don't have near the selection as Bis and Fargo.

Muck arctics are my choice for ice fishing and other cold-weather stationary pursuits

I froze my feet waaaaayyyy to many times as in high school now my feet are the first thing to get cold out fishing and hunting.  i tried everything and finally found my answer when i purchased a pair of the millitary bunny boots.  I know not the best for walking long distances and not the nicest things to look at but if you get cold in these you better go home because its too cold for man kind.  I have a buddy who put his foot through the ice out fishing and the boot filled up with water.  in about 5 minutes his body had warmed up the water in the boot to body temp so he left the water in there all day.  100% thick rubber boot that will never let water in or out.  Mills now sells them.  Not positive on womens sizes though.  I got mine for about $35.    Just google bunny boots and you will see them.

 Baffin boots all the way.  Only thing that will keep my feet warm.

+1

I have tried the Sorels and nothing comes close to the comfort and warmth of the Predators.
