Gloves

I did some searching in past topics and really was not able to find any information on this specific question on gloves.  Looking for suggestions for an ice fishing glove that is warm, waterproof and still allows for some dexterity.  I have a pair or insulated gortex decoy gloves but when it gets really cold these don't do the trick.  I typically set up the hub house and just use it as a warming house and hole hop even into sub zero temps.  I had some medical treatment in the past that has left me with peripheral vasoconstriction and hence cold hands in even moderate temps.  I realize I may be spending up to 75$ on a pair that meets these specifications but to keep fishing enjoyable I want warm hands.  Any input would be great!

Simms makes insulated waterproof neoprene gloves for steelhead fishing. I don't personally own these, but I have Simms waders and other stuff for fly fishing - they make excellent gear.

 

If you have peripheral vascular problems though, these might not cut it for warmth and you may have to sacrifice some dexterity. In that case, you could do what I do and get some wool fingerless and a nice pair of choppers/striker/ice armor mits that you use as needed when things get really cold (size up so you can stick your hands in with the wool on).

 

Good luck.

I take atenelol Chlorosomething for blood pressure control.  I told my doc that I was having a burning sensation when outdoors in the winter and that no gloves seems to solve it.  He told me to cut the 50 mg pills in half and see if it helped.  It does.  Might want to check with your doc and see if something like that can help you in the winter.

I have some Columbia battery heated waterproof gloves that take the edge off but they are about $150.

Yah, that’s a tough situation @Kettle.  Neoprene are pretty much the trend but they still aren’t magic.  I bought a pair of diving gloves and they’re much better than any standard fishing glove.  

 

I bet those Simms are nice.

 

Try to find a pair that fits well but aren’t too snug, and possibly have a breathable back.

You may get two of these warm and waterproof, or waterproof and dexterity but you may be hard press to get all three as dexterity is hard to get with the other two in a glove.  The best I have been able to do is some Duck hunting gloves which aren't cheap.

Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.

Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.

 

Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.

 

Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

This will be third year using the ice armor gloves, first year I used a pair of extreme mitts. They were nice and warm but hard to do any thing with them on. 2 years ago I recived a pair of extreme gloves and those are much better. Not as warm but a lot more movable and I can fish with them on. Last year I recived a pair of edge gloves. Those are really nice to, warm and I can easily fish with them on. I like having two pairs one I’m wearing and the other as backup.

wahoo

I use the Clam Ice Armor--the ones for about $69.  Not great for dexterity but the warmest I have found.  Get a good muff like Cabelas sells with thinsulite and puta few hand warmers inside.  Work well and keep hands moderately dry.

Or, get goretex/thinsulite mists and put a hand warmer in each one.  They slide off easily.  

Haven't tried electric.

Sitka pantanal gloves.  I fish outside in very cold temps with them regularly and they are great.   I have raynaud’s so my hands have very poor circulation.  Not cheap but worth it IMO.   If my hands get cold in those it’s because I’m catching a bunch of fish and need to take them off to unhook lots of fish.

      Seeing Borch has the cool cats going on march 2 I will go with the following weekend! If Saturday or Sunday works better for please say something. This will be a good time to pick the brains of some great fishermen.

      Don't forget to remember the rod, line, lure and rest of equipment you used and that you were eating JohnsonVille brats when you caught it. You know, more sponsors! 😅

      Fishing has been decent for late season. Caught just 3 walleyes under 12” on Friday after a late 10am start due to getting the Ranger stuck 1/4 mile from the house.  Yesterday I caught 9 walleyes including the 25” pictured; all the rest were under 12” except for one 16”. Have caught 5 today and all were under 12” except for one 15”.  Two fish caught on suckers and all the rest on chubs. Fuel and Food didn’t have rainbows or shiners. Have to pull my house off today. Good luck.

      SIF I took the snowmobile from Stuntz Bay all the way to Mud Creek last night to clear snow of the roof of my sisters cabin. The plowed road was fine until just after leaving Stuntz Bay. Then it had tons of water on it. Made the mistake of driving through one and it was at least 6” deep. Covered the windshield, hood, and helmet with ice. The plowed road ended close to Ely island. The rest of my ride was okay other than heavy snow and one slush spot by shore. On the way back I took the snowmobile trail on the lake and that was fine except where it crossed the plowed road and was covered with water. Very tough traveling out there except be sled.

      Hey guys!   Thanks, I really appreciate it.   The response to this fish has been completely overwhelming to me.  I never expected it to get so much attention.   USA Today, FoxNews, Reuters, BBC,  New York Post,  ABC, just name a few.   Then to see it on the top fold of the front page of the Strib was crazy,  not many outdoor stories make that section.      Although I said I think i'm done Ice fishing in the video, I know there are bigger ones out there and guess who was out on the ice until midnight  again last night.  :)   I just love being out there and spending time fishing with friends.  The fish are always a bonus and landing that fish was a team effort.  Most of those fishing friends were made right here on FM.  This site will always hold a special place inside me.  So many great memories.     So awesome to see this Sturgeon fishery rebound and become a resource for everyone in MN to enjoy,  and to be completely honest, as fun as it is to now hold the record,  I hope it keeps getting broken again and again.  That means we are doing something right.

      Happy Sunday Everyone.  Thinking of checking the cabin today and curious if anyone knows the condition of the roads coming out of Stuntz Bay?

      Verified New Minnesota State Record Lake Sturgeon caught ice fishing on the St. Croix River.   Congrats to our very own Darren Troseth the new record holder and our friend John Kimble who was invaluable throughout the process of landing this monster.   78" long, beating the previous record by 5 inches, and estimated at 120 lbs.
