Bassin gloves

14 posts in this topic

I hate fishing with gloves on but sometimes it cannot be avoided - i am in the hunt for some gloves that are a good balance between warming and maneuverability. I like the fingertipless ones but that is not a neccessity. Let hear it.

Check out the underarmor gloves. They are great for flexibility and decent at keeping the cool off of your hands.

Dont wear them except when I'm running. I have looked at the U.A. and they look to be about has good as it'll get.

Depends what you are looking for but the UA ones are good and for a "cheap" pair that work the glacier gloves can be very good if you plan to rarely use them...and they are 1/2 the price.

i think that everybody would prefer to not wear them, but I like the fingerless gloves and fleece ones... if it gets really cold just put a hand warmer in there as well.

Use fingerless gloves that seemed to work for me. Never tried to use regular gloves.

I was givin' bass the "bad touch" Michael Jackson style with one glove.

There are two pair on the market I use. Shimano makes a neoprene glove with slits in the fingers. It does the job on the cold wet days. I for the life of me cannot remember the other brand and am out of town now so cant look in the boat. While I hate gloves these both are the lesser of frozen fingers. Cabelas did carry the Shimano brand and thinking I got the others at a Bass Pro somewhere. Wish I could be more help.

    • IKR! My big decision was if I was going to spend one more day ice Fishing or not?
    • Hey how bout those WILD! Wild beat rival Blackhawks, take over Central Division lead
    • Today is clean house day here. $#@! 
    • Well, if I woulda spent some time in the bichfest forum last night I would've been reminded to make other plans than going to work today. So there coulda been some value there.   Got payroll approved and saw I was on holiday today so I left.    Still not used to having this day off.
    • Packers in the NFC Championship game, Lions in the playoffs, Viking eliminated early. At least you were right about the Bears. 
    • Just a reminder that today (Monday Jan. 16th) is Monday. It is best observed in an individual manner with each of us according it the solemnity we believe it deserves. And keep in mind that Tuesday is coming up.  And then Wednesday. And after that it is Thursday.   Don't look for a point to this post because there isn't one. 
    • 1.16.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello once again from the Northwest Angle!   We're back with another fishing report this week. It was another cold week out on the ice with temperatures below zero for most of the week. We should be out of the cold stretch for a while now and the weather for the next couple weeks is looking really good!   On the Minnesota side, we have our houses on Rabbit Ears, Four Blocks and Little Oak. All have been producing fish. Out at Little Oak, we are fishing in 24-28 feet of water off of structure and out in the mud. At Four Blocks, we are fishing in 22-27 feet of water and have found some very nice slot fish coming up the holes. At Rabbit Ears, we are still in 21-26 and it is still producing buckets of fish consistently. Best colors have been pink and gold tipped with a minnow.   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good. Limits of nice crappies have been coming back every day with some being in that 15-16" range. We are fishing in 27-33 feet for those, with small tungsten jigs tipped with a minnow or plastic. Walleyes have been very consistent in 25-30 feet of water on the Canadian side, also. Same jig colors as the US side, gold and pink tipped with a minnow.   Until next week everyone, stay warm and tight lines! Forrest Huset
    • I was just wondering if you had a point, that's all. I guess the answer is no.
