    Dive suit hip boots?

    What do you guys wear when the ocean is a little to cold to wade in? Say knee deep so you donít freeze?

    If I’m only hunting the wash (thigh deep) and wet sand during the winter, I will wear my chest waders with several pairs of socks and sweat pants underneath.

    Drysuit with dry gloves. Took me several years to get it where I am totally warm
    in extreme cold conditions for several hours. Think the worse this year was 10 degrees and water was 35F.

    Put a belt on around the upper part of the waders, This will keep the waders from filling fast.

    Wear a life vest with your waders. I lived right on a trout stream many years ago. There was a waste deep hole in front of the cabin that was 75 feet long. I saw a guy with chest waders go down in that hole and the current carried him downstream to shallow water. I was there to help get him out of the water, but if there had been no shallows, he would have been in serious trouble.

    OBN suggested the perfect choice. I wouldn’t wear waders for safety issues. Good luck!

    A close friend who was a doryman drowned when he went over the rail with just hip boots. He was always harping on me "you need to pay attention! You're on the ocean!"
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....
    "Hold my beer and watch this!"
