    Fall Rain Gear

    Hey everyone,

    I'm heading up to Mille Lacs towards the end of November, and was wondering what you'd recommend for rain gear and how to dress appropriately for the fall conditions.

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    I really like the Mad Dog insulated rain gear. I use them for waterfowl hunting and musky fishing. The hood fits securely and the pants fit easily over boots and have adjustable snaps at bottom. Price is right too. I ordered one size up to accomodate layering. Joe

    RE: Fall Rain Gear

    Most guys who buy the Cabellas "Guide Wear" product (including me) think it's really good stuff. I do have a kid, however, who lives out in Boulder and is a pretty serious skier and boarder--one of the nutty ones who actually hikes up the mountain on foot just so he has his own personal trail to cut. He buys a product called Arcterix that is labeled as a "Pro" level of Gore-Tex. The jacket is $500.00 and the pants about $350.00 and are about as thin and light as a ten dollar summer rain jacket you'd get at Wal-Mart. The kid says his suit beats the crap out of my Guide Wear. Just curious if others are aware of a better quality Gore-Tex with this "pro" enhanced feature.....and, of course, whether it can possibly be worth the money.

    WARM WATERPRO0F BOOTS!!!
    WARM WATERPROOF BOOTS!!!
    WARM WATERPROOF BOOTS!!!

    spent quite a few late fall days on Mile lacs and the pond gets rough tossing water over the boat,,if your feet get wet your ######!!

    snowmobile boots with the plastic bottoms and leather or fabric uppers and ALL wool socks if you can find them,,,,and those crazy 'lectric' battery powered heated socks are a blessing if you find you have to sit down all day and troll,,,toes get cold when your not standing,,

    the west end of the lake is my fav for late fall because if need be you can run to the casino,Mcdonalds,Blue Goose,or the Holiday/subway to warm up

    one more thing,,,make sure the foot wear you have is good on ice and have something product wise that DE-ICES,,,Mile Lacs throws water over the boat and it sometimes litteraly freezes on contact making the floor/platforms of your boat ice covered slick and it also causes yout hatches to freeze shut

    one more thing,,,leave those Calcuttas home dont know about the TE's but the regular calcuttas freeze up fast,,,abu 7000's or just the plain old 6500's seem to last the longest
