What are the best Wading boots out there for lure fishing
What Wading Boots Should I Buy? One of the most important things to consider lure fishing for bass is having a good pair of wading boots. You need to be very firm n your feet especially with some of the hazards when you are wading in the water.
For me personally, wading over kelp is not always for the faint-hearted. But we all know that these areas can be a great hunting ground for bass. So we are going to research which type of boot is the best for wading over seaweed or kelp and other terrains.
In the article ‘What wader should I buy for bass fishing’ I go through some of the options for waders, although not all great for wading over the kelp and rocks. I also mention some of the unfortunate experiences I have had really by not having a decent pair of wading boots.
So below are a few key things to take into consideration when buying a decent pair of wading boots.
Safety Is Important When Choosing Wading Boots
Let’s face it if you’re going to splash out on a decent pair of wading boots then your going to want to feel safe. Having a pair of specifically designed boot is an essential thing you should consider before purchasing.
Daytime Fishing and Wading Boots
Wading through the water can be an awkward experience if your not careful where you tread. Remember you would normally have a rod in your hand that could hamper your balance if you were too tired awkwardly.
In the daytime its a lot easier to see where you are going. Nighttime is a different kettle of fish. I wouldn’t venture over a flooding tide over the rocks on my own, especially at night.
If you did decide to fish at night on your own you should always stay away from danger. Ultimately, stay out of the water.
Weight For Wading Boots
This is another fairly important thing to consider when purchasing your boots. Let’s face it your boots are going to feel heavier once you’re in the water. So when we step back on dry land we want that water to drain away immediately. Some boot will just hold the water and feel really heavy.
In the past, I have purchased cheap hiking boots thinking I’d had a result. But unfortunately, they held all the water and the eyelets corroded and snapped off after only a few fishing trips. They were compatible but didn’t last. This is why it pays to invest in a great pair of wading boots.
Good Drainage For you Boots
Great wading boots will have channels to let the water instantly drain away. Also, the materials in the boots do not hold on to the water which is exactly what we want.
