Gloves for fall fishing?

7 posts in this topic

Looking for recommendations on a pair of gloves to use for open water fishing when it's cold out?

Thanks.

Don't laugh! Try women's small one size fits all cotton gloves. They look like kids gloves but, they do stretch. On sale they are usually about a buck a pair.

I have been on a quest for good fishing gloves for years. The best thing that I've come up with is several pair of the cheap brown work gloves and I keep one or two pair warm inside my clothes and change them often.

I have tried many different styles and brands and have found the best that works for me. They are made by Wells Lamont in the SUG (Sport Utility Glove) line. I bought them at Fleet Farm and are style number 848. They have rubber pads on the tip of each finger that allow me to cast a baitcaster and not get my fingers wet. I have used them for two years and very happy with them. I even use them while ice fishing.

Heres a picture of them.

I cast open water until ice-up, and have found that Ice Armor gloves work best. They are thin, warm, and water resistant. I've tried almost everything and these have worked the best.

I use Seal Skinz and would highly recommend them. No they are not actual seal skin, just the name brand. They are waterproof and warm. The problem is finding places that carry them. They are spendy at about $30 a pair, but I have used mine for two years and they are still in perfect shape, so they seem to last a long time. I actually think several places quit carrying them and replaced with ice armour as mentioned above.

Like Gunflint, I like to buy about four pair of cheap jersey gloves and swap them out when they get wet. They're thin enough to still have decent feel.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
