There really is no need to go that deep. and at night's I wouldn't be surprised if some lunkers are right behind you, in the suds.

Too deep

Def don't need to be out that far in waders. That's trout fishing. If you hook a good one you could lose your footing and be going swimming.

Yikes chest deep with waders!

Hopefully you have waders that have a nice tight way to tighten the built in belt and always keep it nice and tight. This will help prevent water filling your waders but accidents do happen.

In calm water when you are not fishing you should try to immerse yourself with your waders on. Let plenty of that sea water fill the waders. Now try to move. Now imagine this happening to you at night with the rest of your tackle all around you and your waders filling up with cold water by a series of waves and loosing your footing.

You probably have these items with you at all times but I recommend you make sure they are positively attached to you... a knife and a waterproof flashlight/light sticks. A flashlight/light stick so that you can be located if you start to drift out by the waves and the knife to cut/slit your waders to release the water preasure. I also always carried 30 feet of polypropylene rope (it floats) attached to a large weighted treble hook with the barbs cut. This was carried more to save someone that fell from a jetty (started to drift) and give them a chance to hold onto something. An old timer had taught me this and glad he had since it did come handy once. My buddy still thanks me for that night that I saved him.

If you want to go chest deep in anything use a wet suit please. Even more challenging is a wetsuit and fins! Now that was a blast trying to land big bass or flip flopping blues!

Good luck
