Waders, outdoor gear, gloves? NY/NJ october and november

Rate this topic

14 posts in this topic

Looking to get some outdoor gear.  I'm 5'10" 210lbs, waist 36, inseam 30 or so, size 9.5 foot.

 

What do you guys suggest.   Prefer to add a layer to keep warm rather than buy two setups.

 

Maybe 200ish range if possible.   

 

Maybe buy wades now, then top later.

Just get waders that dont leak and layer up underneath, wool socks with sweats tucked into them.

 

I use the same gloves all season. I dont think you need wool gloves until late december or january.

 

Jacket depends on what kind of fishing you want to do. Are you getting blasted by waves on a jetty or are you standing shin deep at the surf line?

I fish alot and I double over when I see some surf guys decked out in waders, gloves, in October in NJ.

I realize alot of you want to look like fisherman but you can get thru October with water shoes and maybe neoprene boots.

 

I start to use neoprene boots in the beginning of November and after that waders in late November into December.

Unless I am getting blasted by waves I wear a good rain jacket.  I just got a Patagonia that I love and it keeps my completely dry I also wear LL Bean waders.  I wear that combo all year long, I just layer differently underneath. If im going to take a lot of spray or waves head on I wear an aquaskinz splashtop with gaskets.

Fair point but youre not factoring in air temps. It can be in the 50s at night and when Im dead-still trying to be in a zen state Id rather not be shivering. You are right that the water temps are still semi warm which is why the fishing can be outstanding in october.

Breathable waders with layers underneath. 

 

Having a zip up top instead of a pull over is a lot easier but not usually as waterproof. That usually isn't much of a big deal unless you are getting slammed by waves.

 

I have a wading jacket that I got on the buy sell trade part of this site that is excellent and does the job most of the time. 

 

Layers are the way to go since often it is cold in the morning and then as the sun comes up you want to layer down. Reverse the system for night.

Frogg Togs  for me.  Stocking foot breathable.  Check BassPro they may have them in stock.  The pair I’m using is 3 seasons old.

Sierra Trading has a pair of breathable stockingfoot waders for $50. They also have deals occasionally on Korker boots. Right now not so much but I did pick up a pair last year for $70. Had I waited a few months, they dropped them to $50. :mad:

October aint too rough, more november and early december.  Haven't done a fall run in a decade.  Freezer has plenty of venison from 2 folks tagging out last year.  Not enough fillets...........

 

How does the overboot size work?   I am a 9 wide, so I'm usually a 9.5 regular, if wide aint available.  

 

Neopreme waders  necesity, or good wool socks are ok.

 

What about mid 50's nights in mid 60's temps.  Looks like I'm going to get something breathable.  Also getting a pair for my girlfriend.  It's great when you got to buy 2 of everything.....

Go a full size up if you are buying stocking foot waders.  The neoprene booty’s + wool socks need that extra 1/2 inch.

 

I wear 11 boots and wear 12s.

what about cleats that go over boots?  Probably should get them as well.  Used to put studs on knee high rubber boots.  Looking for something to put over a boot.  Some of my fishing will be getting there from inflatable boat.  Hate to puts studs in there......

 

Thinking the chains style can either be too aggresive, or you just roll on the chain if too mild.  There's alot of slip on rubber ones.  I am thinking of using muck style boots.  Besides the rubber give, I'm doubtful if they'll stay on.

Water temps were never the issue. The stiff winds alone will make you cold, and if you're wet you're in for a long session. 

 

That said, what you get really depends on the type of fishing you'll be doing. For some, waders and a jacket is enough. I think the jacket is more important than the waders so don't skimp on that, though you'll obviously need both. I have the Stormr Prime jacket, and this thing is a beast, unless you're gonna be taking waves to the face. If this is the case go with something that has gaskets.
