Gloves

13 posts in this topic

What kind of gloves do you use when ice fishing?
It would be nice to have a very snug fit glove that is waterproof and breathable.I had a pair of neoprene gloves but my hands would sweat in them and then they would get wet and cold anyway.
Any one find any Gore Tex gloves that fit nice and tight?

I use rag wool finger mitts most of the time, but I have yet to find a good pair that is warm and yet still gives you the sensation of a bite on your rod. I'm probably like most people in that I fish bare-handed most of the time, I guess this is why my hands look so rough(cracked and dried out). I have used shooting gloves before and they seem to work fairly good.

Ya thats my problem too.I don't wear glove much of the time and my hands suffer from it.I have been trying to use gloves more lately.The older you get and the more times you crack your hands the harder it is to get them to heal.
I have found some nice tight construction gloves that work well.I can tie up and still feel a little.Probelm is they get wet in a hurry and then your doing more harm than good wearing them.I have 3 pairs along for a day of fishing along with some snowmobile gloves for traveling.I have also been using the Rock-n-Reels and you can see a bite better on those than you can feel it.Then you can wear gloves and not worry about sensitivity in you fingers.
Would be nice to see some tight Gore Tex gloves so I can minimize all the gear I bring.

Great big old fashioned chopper mitts. Big enough I can shake them off instantly and get a tip-up.

I use a pair of fingerless wool gloves with a larger pair of choppers or Kinco gloves. It works great when I'm pulling my house out,punching holes and setting the house up. When I have just the fingerless on I have the sensitivity with my rod/line and they keep my hands warm enough in the house. I don't like the one's that have a full thumb and the flip over mitt. The thumb doesn't let me tie jigs on and the flip mitt lets go of the velcro usually and is too bulky.

I got a pair of Swany Toaster mitts that work mighty fine. They are a mitton with a zipper on the side of the hand from the top of the pointer finger to the base of your thumb, with a soft black glove lining so you can unzip and use your digits.

Great access when you need that extra touch.

They are made for skiiers to still have a good grasp for their ski poles, yet still a mitton.

I use fingerless rag wool gloves and put polypro glove liners inside them. Not waterproof, but sensitive and my hands stay warm even if the fingers get a little wet. The best polypro glove liners I've found are at a workwear store that sells Carhartt, Dickie, etc. The liners were only $2-$3 per pair. Put one or two of the chemical handwarmers in your jacket pocket and you should be set for the day. Good luck.

I'm usally in my otter and don't use any gloves. If I'm getting tip ups I have the wool mitts with the flip off finger thing. works pretty well.

I use the fingerless neoprene gloves when I am fishing and put on the big warm choppers any time I leave the comfort of the Fish trap. I usually keep my cooker/heater fired up plenty warm so wearing the fingerless is not a problem in the trap.

I use Thinsulate wool fingerless gloves that have the mitten flap that folds over the fingers if they get cold. Real easy access to your fingers if you need them, and the wool is nice and warm. I have also used the fingerless glove/chopper method too.

Its hard to beat the wool fingerless gloves under a good pair of lined chopers. Also I like fleece fingerless gloves under choppers. Not as warm but not as bulky.

    • Please God, make Keith Ellison the head of the DNC
    •   Doubtful we would have seen it by now. The bigger issue has always been possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian opps to influence the election - and who knew what and who ordered what. That's the big fish. You just have to be patient, all in due time Uncle Bill.
    •   I didn't waste a vote on him..   The garbage can had as much a chance of winning.   You owe the brave voters of Trump a great debt of gratitude for saving this country from hillary..   That's one big beer you owe the "trumpers"...   Bigly....  
    • Picked up some track at FF and put it on the floor and ramp. Also added a couple sections of e track on the wall to hang tie downs etc. Doesn't look like I'm going to get any use out of it this year but will be ready for next year. Plan on taking out track on floor in summer as it can get slippery and going to put in a couple wheel chocks for motorcycles.

    •     I think he's actually you and delcecchi's hero, judging by the number of times you guys bring him up....
    •   So did you get a guarantee when we started and lost the war on drugs or is this your version of a double standard? I am saying here is a reasonable solution with the positives outweighing the negatives. This is especially true when compared to the current model that has never worked.   Benefits to ending the war on drugs.
      1. Huge savings enforcement and prison $$$ that can be used on treatment. 1 Trillion spent so far with no results.
      2. Police can focus their man hours on violent and other criminals. 82% of drug arrests are for possession. 3. Creating jobs and collecting taxes on drug sales. Imagine that save tax $$ on enforcement and increase revenue, win win. 4. The legit business model puts most of the dealers, gangs and cartels out of business. The very fact that drugs are illegal makes them expensive because of the risk involved, taking the money out of the black market essentially puts these people out business and that is a good thing. Keeping drug illegal keeps the money flowing their way and nothing we can do other than legalization will stop this.

       
      Says the guy who wants to double down on 45 years of failed policy and poor judgment.
      What is even more mind blowing is that free market republicans want to continue failed big gov policies at a huge cost to the taxpayers. We already have legal drugs from big pharm killing people in record numbers to go along with alcohol and tobacco deaths so it is not like we are venturing into unknown territory here.
