Wading/ Diving Boot Ideas For Bridge And Causeway Fishing Please
Up to this point all of my wading and inshore saltwater fishing has been beaches on the west coast. I always fish barefoot unless the water and air temps are cold enough to wear waders.
I’m planning a trip now to the east coast and from my research I will probably be adding bridges and causeways to my itinerary and I envision those areas having large boulders, rip rap, etc., and some sort of footwear will be necessary.
I’ve seen the Neoprene flats style boots which appear to be fine for beaches, mud, etc., but am wondering they are a good choice and have the right type and thickness in the sole for walking around bridge areas, causeways, rocks, boulders, etc., in addition to wading the beach areas.
I’ve also seen some diving boots that appear to have an actual hard sole.
Probably my basic question is do I need the hard soled wading/ diving boots for a combination of wading and fishing around bridges, causeways, rocks, etc., or will the flats boots such as the Magellan and World Wide Sportsman be sufficient?
Any suggestions, ideas, and experiences are tremendously appreciated.
Thanks so much.
