As my name suggest I love sleds (snowmobiles). The studs would have to start inside the boot and then you would use what is called a backer on the outside to hold it in place. If you try it you definitely should buy the tool for drilling. It makes things much easier.

Ardmore Bill used snowmobile studs by I think Trail Blazer on a pair of boots , they are carbide nuggets on the stud head instead of a spike and grip very well on rock . Screw in from the outside . He did it about 2-3 years ago , he can give a long twerm report if he chimes in .

Jim, what you want are the threaded studs that actually screw into the track lugs(paddles) from the outside. If you bought them you would be screwing them into the bottom of your boots. They screw into plastic on the track which I would assume holds a little better than the rubber or felt on your wading boot. Maybe a little dab of epoxy on the screws or something to secure them once screwed in.

I showed PeteG the normal snowmobile stud with backing and he showed me the klymaxx ones online. The normal ones with the carbide tip would work the best but they might make you too tall.

Witchhunter (Billy Jakob) uses them. Turned me on to them a few years ago. Best used when fishing rocks that are mostly submerged with lots of weed growth. Spikes are long enough to penetrate and grab. Probably not such a great idea on jetties and rockpiles or if you do a lot of walking. I do less swimming and more walking now. Will probably try the carbide hex head screws that Nib showed me.

Too long, at least the ones that I checked, IIRC. I know a few guys that use them and they all go through the boot with the nuts or backing plate on the bottom as described.

The pictures by Alaskan Steve, and the newsreports from Colorado are depressing since there is 4 snowmobiles in the backyard. Oh well more time to fish.
