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.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
