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.

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.

    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
