I do what I do with the rest of my cold weather garments; Layer. Thin silk gloves, finger-less wool gloves (the kind with the flip up mitten piece) and leather choppers over everything else if it gets real nasty.

Ive been using those hand warming packets inside those muffs that you belt around your waist.With a light pair of fleece gloves. also the hand warmers help heat up the duck or goose calls late in the year.

I found wool liner gloves from an Army surplus store. There is always a guy selling them at the Ice Fishing show. I have terrible circulation and have had frostbite before so I always have to take care of my hands.

Mittens will always be warmer than a glove with equal insulation. The glove/mitten combos are a good thing, but leave room in them for a liner glove and a heater packet if you need it. I always use one just in case and put it in my coat pocket if its too warm.

I have purchased a couple years ago a pair of neoprene gloves for putting in and taking out decoys. The finger's are not bulky and easy to shoot and reload with. I think if I remember correctly they are 4mm thinsulate.

I'm with Elwood. I have always had problems keeping my hands warm. Two years ago I switched to the muff with a heat pad in the middle. Awesome! I can wear light gloves on the coldest days and still operate my duck calls or the release for my bow. I think some of the high end waders actually have this muff built into them now.

I use neoprene ones when rowing or handling decoys, switch to wool when shooting. I use the wool ones that have some type of "gripping" dots on the palms. Use a muff with handwarmers for deer hunting.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
