Signs of a good night.

Sometimes you get a little souvenir trying to land or in this case, release a fish. This one will leave a mark for a few days, so I will be using a glove the next few trips out. The other side of my fingers look the same way frown

It only takes a few hundred of those to finally realize that gloves are your friend. laugh

It’s like banging your head against the wall over and over again.

Amen to that, Darren. I've got a few pair of gloves scattered around the boat now. I'm done having my hands taking a beating - I don't know who started that macho no gloves stuff but you can all call me names if you want but I'm done hurting myself. Brings to mind the famous John Wayne quote - "Life is tough but it is even tougher if you are stupid."

I've really only had a bad rash once and it was this year. That is enough to make me consider getting gloves. It wasn't so bad the night it happened; it was more annoying the many days it took to heal - and it took a while! I can only imagine what it would be like for some of you who get out more and might get a rash on top of your rash.

I will normally glove a big one for pictures, but this one was only about 25# and I was just grabbing her to set her back in the water. I too have several gloves in my boat, and if the heat of the moment doesn't get to me, I will put one on, but I was just going to lift it up and set her back in the water. I am sure it wont be the last time it happens to me.

Agreed...thought it was a badge of honor for a while and then asked myself why I am deforming my hand and now I use a glove every time.

For those of us who only get to fish once a week, if that, those scrapes are great reminders during the long work week. Although I caught 2 flats on Saturday and neither one scratched me at all.

I hear that; once your hands heal during cat season you know its been too long since you wet a line.

Signs of a good night.

I would say bring some lotion with next time. I am sure it will keep the chaffing down to a minimum. wink

If you did not want to show off the “rash” for a week, a little triple A and a anesthetic wipe will cure it up in a day or two. These should be in the first-aid kit wink Maybe a bandage over the area if you want. This is only if you want to clear it up in a day or two and not roll around work for a week showing it off like a new cell phone.

Other than than looks like it was a good night 4WE grin

I have so many scars I can't even remember how they happened. On my hands, my arms, even a couple all the up by my elbows.

Suck it up and quit compaining. At least your catching fish.

What John failed to mention is that most of his scars are from things like, oh I don’t know, cooking steaks or just handling sharp objects in general.

Maybe you could use a glove during those cookouts John.

Alright...so I have a problem with sharp objects and have had stiches 7 times in the last 10 years (none of those are fishing related)

When you are as experienced as I am with handling hundreds if not thousands of fish over 50 pounds every year......then you won't have to wear gloves either.

Oh wait, I haven't caught anything over 50 and only one over 40.......

Can you ship those pink gloves to my home address??

    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
