Cold Weather Gloves?

Ducks and Fish

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.

Daze Off

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?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.
