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?

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
