When looking through the water, while sitting in my Kayak.... the water looked about 6-7 inches deep.. So as I pull up to the bank and get out, I sink roughly 4 feet. I was stuck in thigh deep mud and couldn't move. As I tried to pull free, my feet simply came out of my boots. I coultdn't work my way free for the life of me. Fortunately I had a friend with me who was already on the bank who held out a paddle for me to grab on to.
Has anybody ever sank in mud so thick that they were stuck for a good while?

Neoprene floats if they aren't on you. On you with air in the boots maybe a little.
I know that this is a free country guys, but I can't figure out why most of you won't take this serious. People have drown falling out of a boat in waders. IT CAN HAPPEN. The famous last words of a fool is "it won't happen to me".
Take this into consideration. There's a thread right now about PCS and some self proclaimed rookie looking to hunt there. Say no one tells him about the mud or the hidden dangers and he goes out there in a pair of waders because he's read on here that its no big deal. Next thing you know we will be reading about that guy. There's no such thing as too safe or too cautious.
