hot tip for cold hands

13 posts in this topic

When fishing in cold weather. Take a ice cream bucket, start your engine and let it heat up. Place the bucket under the spray outlet. Fill it up. Place hands in bucket to warm them up. Dry with towel. Now you got warm hands!!!!!!

Not sure I'd want to do that. Water shouldn't be coming through there that warm, plus it may have a scent of exhaust/gas on it if you're running a 2 stroke. Now you've got wet hands that smell like gas, that are a bit warmer than when you started.

I'll opt for a pair of gloves. But, to each their own.

Yeah I guess that could work in a pinch but hopefully I have a pair of gloves around.........Is that water really that warm?

Take a hand warmer and tape it around the handle of your fishing rod. Keeps your hand nice and warm.

Thats not a bad idea lippy. Under the right very cold circumstances that could work. Thanks for sharing the idea.

Gloves can be wet. Even your extra pairs. When your hands are really cold with no motor or ice cream bucket pe-e in a pop can. It is heaven. You will get about 5 min. of warmth. If you have no pop can you can still warm your hands up. I would go for the gloves too. Sometimes things go bad. At that point scent does not matter. Great tip before the motor freezes up.

Neat idea. Of course be careful to not fall in - cold day - numb hands. On some boats this would be easy to do and others i t would not be so easy.

    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
