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?

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
