Wow. I didn't realize that stuff was so corrosive. Will I need special waders?

"Salt water is bad, stay off & away. It causes everything to rust, including your aluminumn boat ( oxidaition) it eats up the finish on your gun and gear, awful on shells. Stay away from salt water swamps are better. I mean who eats those nasty divers and sea duck, surely not me. Sea ducks, yuck!"

Eat sea ducks? WHAT? Next thing you know somebody will say you can eat coots- what is the world coming to?

Yeah we always carry a 100 pound bag of lime with us and dump it out in a big circle before we set out our decoys. If you can afford it spray all of your gear with salt x before it touches the water as well and it will repel the salt.

You will need a 55 gallon drum of bug spray and a big flat shovel too. The spray won't help much, but at least it will make you think you are doing something. The shovel makes a good "skeeter swatter". A couple of good whacks and it's sure to break a wing or maybe one of their legs. :hammer:

Oh, they are good eat'n too. We steam up the legs with plenty of butter. I've seen them on the menu at the local restaurants. They call them "snow crab legs" so the tourists will eat them. :lol3:

I bet it would go good on some "Salters favorite" loon steaks. Hard to beat a good loon steak.

Yes that is the best way. You will have some residual leftover lime. Take your deet spray and spray it all over your face and then get a handful of lime and rub it in real good. It will repel skeeters and serve as face paint but looks better than the cheap stuff the duck commander wears.

In that case you might want to use more lime, to get more of a green camo effect. Green and Black would make a good camo pattern. Don't worry about reapplying cause it is a one time and done treatment. :hi:

Never tried lime, I like Sulfur. It has a nice olive drab color to it that I use as face paint
