Cold Weather Gloves?

7 posts in this topic

What do you guys wear for gloves fishing assuming you are going to get them wet? I usually use my duck hunting gloves, but they are a little hard to cast with. Anyone try those sealskins? I want something thin and have good feel, yet water repellant.

I buy a three pack of the brown cotton gloves from Wal-mart or Menards. When they get damp, I put on a new pair. I keep three pair in my jacket. They keep off the chill and have a surprisingly decent grip.

I use the neoprene ones with the index finger and thumb finger slots so you can slip your fingertips out/in as the need arises. Not bad on keeping dry but not great on keeping warm. I usually put a couple of those chemical pads that you shake and they get warm/hot in my pockets to help with warmth. They work surprisingly well.

I use the smae as Daze. They are glacier gloves , and they work real nice. Use them Musky fishing.

I keep a box of surgical gloves in the boat. I wear them under whatever gloves I am wearing and me hands stay dry and warm.

I just saw something in the gear review in Field and Stream. Cloudveil gloves. Anyone ever try those rod wraps?

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
