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!

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
