My Korkers are so old I have no idea what model they are, come to think of it, when I purchased them, they were the only model available.....:huh:

Still got the original laces and spikes on them, but the spikes are pretty much shot, should probably shop for a new pair before the fall run gets here and I start jetty jumping again......

Tony, the fall run? What planet have you been on for the past 4 seasons? More specifically the past 4 spring seasons!

Around these parts the spring run action has always been better....(at least for me).....in the back bay / river area. Plugging around bridges at sunset when the lights first come on has produced more bass for me then any jetty I've cast a lure from.....besides, with the on going sand pumping here, I doubt any of the jetties I frequent will be worth a damn until fall anyway......

I was just in Tackle Direct this afternoon, and was checking out some wading boots with spikes. They're not the same type of spikes the Korkers have, but they're spikes.....I was wondering how they would hold on the rocks.....?

I just looked at the Korker's website and I kinda like this Streamborn wading boot they got with the changeable soles. Tackle Direct has them listed for $139.95, but they come with the trail sole, and felt sole, the jetty spike sole is another $35.00 so it would be $175.00 in the end.....

I still like the idea of a good supportive boot with spikes. years ago when the Walt's Walkers were available, I got a pair that fit tight over a pair of hiking boots, and as long as the temps weren't too extreme, they allowed me the best and safest mobility on the rocks, and the nice thing about the Walt's Walkers was, the spikes were standard golf shoe spikes, and you could find replacements at any sporting goods store....(of course now days spiked golfing shoes are pretty much a thing of the past)....which brings me to the other foot wear I used on jetties in the summer, a pair of white golf shoes....

But getting back to the boots.....I like the looks of the Korker's boot with the interchangeable soles, has anyone used any of the Korker's footwear instead of the strap or lace on sandals........???

I've got the streamborn wader boots and I really like em.The problem I'm having is corrosion on the metal.All the metal on the boots has corroded in 1 season.Right now I'm planning on retro fitting them with nylon lace up's.This is the only problem,it's a big problem but the boots work great.

Last year I discovered the benefits of carrying a spray bottle of "Saltaway" with me. When I get back to the Jeep I give my reels, pliers, terminal tackle, and surf bag a quick spray then flush everything as soon as I get home.
I would assume it would extend the life of those metal components on the Korker boots as well.

HMMMM never heard of saltaway I gotta get me some of that.Where did you get it???I was carring water with me for my reels but I never thought of something for my boots,just washed em when I got home.

FC:eek:
First fishncrazy I must apologize for getting the name of the product wrong, it's actually called Salt treminator and claims to be an Engine flush, cleaner & corrosion inhibitor.......

From what I understand, there's a couple different brand name products like this on the market. I found this particular brand at Brennan Marine in Somers Point, NJ.
It's a 12 fluid Oz. spray bottle of concentrate made by Kwik-Tek in Denver, CO
It also claims to be biodegradable, non-toxic & environment friendly.
The instruction say to mix with water, but I just lightly spray everything, then flush with water when I get home. Since I started using this stuff last year, the hooks on all my artificials have lasted much longer, as a matter of fact, I don't have to replace too many this year as compared to previous years when I'd have to replace the hooks on every thing I used...

It's proven to be some pretty good stuff, and if I get the opportunity to purchase those Korker wading boots, I'll be using this stuff on them as well.....:thumbsup:
