Best advice I can give you is to wear neoprene socks and then it doesn't matter what boots you wear. You can even have holes in them and get those socks wet. They will keep your feet warm. Wool does the same thing but it makes my feet itch.

Good Fishin

Bob,

Here are a few threads. Ther is another one that was on this board I am trying to find.

I have the Guy Cotton boots. They have foam liners that are removable if they get to warm. They keep my feet toasty.

The liners also give a lot of padding which help your back if you are on your feet a lot.

I know your 99 year old back would like that.:D
:clap:
I bought mine a few years ago at I coopers in Hampton. They had a good price plus they give you an extra discount if you pay cash.

Rugged Shark white non-marking boots have the most comfortable footbed of any of the foul weather boots that I have tried. Me and most of my friends have migrated to that brand.

When you see a commercial boat they almost always run Furuno electronics, wear Grundens foul weather gear and Xtra Tuff Boots. Check out the Xtra Tuffs at I Coopers.

Boots

FINNBOB, i just bought a pair of Sperry Barracuda boots. They are waterproof and keep your feet warm and are very light. They were $99 at Bass Pro shop Doug.

You won't be sorry Billy. I've had mine for 5 years and they look like they will make another 5 years no problem. Unless it is in the 20's or less I just wear normal socks. When it turns real cold I have some Cabellas wool socks that I prefer.

Do those muck boots mark the floor on your boat? Im looking for a pair that dont. I dont like leaving black marks on the floor for the mate to have to get up.

Cool I was going to ask you the sock thing. I appreciate the info Darren. They do fit snug around my caffs.
