I didn't take the "you have to burn your tuna clothes" thing seriously.  Then I encountered tuna slime.  Now I take it seriously.  That stuff is no joke.  Disposable clothing only for me.

I wear rubber boots, bibs and a white undershirt t shirt that I can throw away.

Question for those that have the experience.  Will boots like bogs or muck boots work or will they stink too much after wards?  Kinda sounds like I need to buy a cheap pair of actual rubber boots?
Thanks

They are fine, but mine probably stink anyway from cow crap.  I have had to use the wash down hose to spray poop out of the boat a few times.

hopefully they don't stink too bad. I cannot find a pair of rubber boots in size 16 that fits my foot and calves worth a dang. so muck or bogs it will be!

Oxycleen on the clothes and run a cycle after you wash and you'll be fine. I have a front loader that has a sanitize cycle and it does a good job though there is a slight odor afterwards. Grundens, Helly Hansen, Carrhart, whatever on the bibs...Breathable stuff will stink for a long time.Anything porous will retain the funk. Hydrate and get ready for a full body workout session if the fishing is good. Lather, rinse, repeat....Tell us about it afterwards...Have Fun!

so bibs, and fully waterproof. expect to throw away my clothes when I'm done. copy that!

was thinking about buying these bibs, as I will really only need these once or twice. I live in eastern Washington, and don't make it out fishing where I need bibs over here. any thoughts?

yeah I'm being a bit of a tightwad here, but I also need a bigger size, and they are hard to come by. Helly Hansen makes a set of bibs I like in a size I need, but they are out of stock everywhere I look. was thinking the ones I linked to are cheap enough to use and toss if needed, and would let me try out offshore fishing without dropping 100+ on a set of bibs.

I'd be surprised if you couldn't run by the local Ranch and Home and pick up a pair of cheapo rubber bibs.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

Well I've got some of the cheap yellow bibs, but they tend to fall apart so fast I didnt think they would work.
I need a 5x usually in bibs, and those are hard to come by locally too.

So it looks like grainger has the Helly Hansen Mandal available.

Anyone care to comment on the fit and quality of those? do they run big or small?

Some charters require rain gear.  That way they can hose you off and you dont get blood and slime in the cabin.
Right wing shooter, I aim for the left!!!

Nowhere in your incoherent rambling did you come close to what can be considered a rational thought. Everyone is now dumber having heard it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.
