fish glove

6 posts in this topic

I was watching a fishing show the other day and the guy had a big rubber glove that had velcrow on it and another piece of velcrow around his belt so when he caught a fish it was easily accessible to put the glove on to remove the fish without being poked. I thought this would be perfect for my trip to Canada (expecting to be catching numbers of fish) I didnt think my hands would feel very good after 5 days of walleye fishing. Does anyone know what company makes this or where I could find one? Thanks!

Scheels All sports sells them , or any farm implement dealer has a similar rubber glove.

I do not know if you should buy one , you may Jinx the trip ! "expect little a you won't be disapointed" .

Good luck and have a great time .

I have one of those Lindy fish handling golves i got for X-mas. It is awesome for handling bullheads b/c they cant sting ya. Great for takin sunnies out of the livewell, nice for holdin northearns or walleys b/c the fish wont move with all the grip you get with that glove. Maybe not good for CPR but if ur careful it shouldnt matter.
Great idea!

I will swear by those gloves! Using a crankbait with a lively smallmouth flopping around, I've had too many hooks in the fingers. I save a lot of time with these gloves.

Gloves? I wish I wore gloves! I bring them along always, but never use them untill my hands are cut-up, bleeding, swollen, and infected. Then I think...time to wear the gloves!! A little too late at this point. frown.gif On some of my longer trips the wounds take from days to weeks to heal. A northern on the English River below Ear Falls put a 1 1/2" x 1/4 cut on my hand which I sewed up myself! A crank bait buried a hook deep under my tendons and arterys on my wrist while on a HOT bite on L Erie. The hook was completly gone out of site. I tryed pulling it back out, but the barb would catch my veins and tendons(?). On a boat 7 miles from an island which we took a fairy to, and no medical facilities on the island....and the fish are biting. What do you do? PUSH IT THROUGH!! Pushed that point through about a 1/4 inch of meat untill the point poked out of my wrist. My friend clipped the barb, and the shank slipped right out. Strange thing was, there was zero blood and pain. Who's got time for a glove when the fish are putting on the feed? Not me.....until I can't handle the pain. I guess I'll never learn, as much as I tell myself.......never again!

    • It's not optimum for home defense or hunting either. Basically just lower cost plinking.    As far as Bushmaster, they make ok guns for sure. But personally the fact that they are owned by a venture capital firm who tried but failed to sell them off some time ago, they are more than likely controlled by bean counters rather than gun enthusiasts and that generally doesn't bode well for quality. 
    •   social media king...... and dont you forget it ! ! !  lol
    •   I see you have a whooooping 65 posts. start sharing and maybe the site will be smokin again... LOL  have fun and stop beating the horse that died.  pretend ya just found the site  
    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
