Fish gloves - what works, what doesn't?

9 posts in this topic

My dog chewed up my Lindy glove a couple of years ago, smelled like a snack I guess... And I'm wondering what others have had experience with that doesn't cost another $25. My main reason for wanting to use the glove is walleye/pike fishing in Canada - my hands were cracked, cut, and sore for a week after I got back last time. I was thinking of looking at something to possibly leave on while fishing as well as not having to worry about gills, fins, etc.

Anyway, would love to hear your comments about what you have tried.

I have a pair of gloves I picked up for about 3.95 at WM. I think the brand is laker or something. They are cloth gloves with some sort of rubberized coating. Work great for catfish wranglin', should be fine to protect you from sharp gill plates and whatnot.

Not a fan of Wally but we used some work gloves that had an open weave to them and some little beads that helped grip things - cost may $5. They were made of some sort of poly material and would dry out fairly fast. Wouldn't fish with them but would try to get them on when netting/handling.

I used to bring a bottle of hydrogen peroxide along on the Canada trips. By about day 3 the cuts were getting to be a bit of a hassle if I didn't use the gloves enough. Washing the hands in the evening a couple of times with the hyrdogen peroxide would knock down the inflamation.

Thanks all, I think I'm going to try the garden gloves with rubber coating since they are cheap and abundant.

just be sure to wet them before touching a fish or you will be doing a lot of unintentional killing.

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...
    • Knock yourself out. IMO, pro basketball is a terrible sport.         -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------           Here's what they think of the Gophers in Iowa.....

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
