I have fished just about every weekend most of my life and my hands take a beating. I’ve never liked wearing gloves and my paws have been in a constant state of repair the last 30 yrs. Cuts that used to take a few days now take over a week to heal which bleeds into my next weekend fishing trip literally. I tried nitrile gloves 10 yrs ago but gave up on em rather quickly. I tried the other fishing gloves that are missing fingers but don’t like how they feel after they get wet. I’ve recently decided I can’t take having my hands constantly mangled 100% of the time any longer. I bought a box of 4 mil nitrite gloves that were comfortable but I shred 10 pairs in a trip. I ordered some 8 mil so we’ll see how that goes.

What kinds of gloves do you fellas use that fish hard and often?

Mechanix or even harbor freight ( near by) most any similar work glove,
8 mil nitrile will not help, go for canvas type woven glove, even the cheap ones last longer
I feel your pain or did a few years ago.

Chris,

I have been wearing the nitrile dipped, fabric gloves. Here is a link from Lowes, but can get them at Walmart etc. Catch a sale, and a 10 pack is about a dollar a pair.

I also put O'Keeffe's Working Hands cream on, under the gloves. Still get wet, and not perfect, but better. Throwing a net, or duck decoys in the winter are hard on hands! And lake water and or engine grease keep hands busted up.

I have thought about buying a good light weight pair of Gortex gloves to actually keep my hands dry, but they are not cheap. And I tend to tear up or blow out of the boat, anything nice!

Good luck,
Ken

First let me say that I really do not like wearing gloves, but there are situations where you need them. Most of the light weight gloves work for sun protection. For my Plnor fishing method for big fish, where I don’t use a reel, I wear rubber coated gloves. You can get them at any hardware store. I cut the cloth ends off the gloves so I can get them on and off quickly. They are waterproof and provide excellent protection for your hands when you need them.

I haven't caught near enough fish to need them. Maybe one day.

I wear the Ice Bay Glacier Gloves in the winter for throwing my cast net when it’s freezing out for the past 10 yrs . They are neoprene and do a great job when it’s 30 or below. I don’t like their warm weather synthetic gloves when they get wet though. Catfish are slimy and I like to handle my fish when unhooking them instead of [censored] footing around with them like Barry does. He can keep his gloves and shirt looking fresh and clean all day but that ain’t me. Those synthetic gloves get so slimed up after gripping 4 or 5 blues that I gotta wash em off. Once they are wet I no longer want to wear them. I don’t have a case of fresh gloves sitting off camera when I’m ready for a new pair like Barry either. I have 5 different brands of warm weather “fishing gloves” and they all suck for catfish.

I was gifted a pair of these a couple years back. They're great and have worked well in the ice storm we had this year. I was out fishing in the snow and hands were warm compared to my face from the winds.

I like you got tired of having tore up hands especially in the winter, so I started wearing nitrile gloves 7 and 9 mil. They work great. I rarely tear more than one glove a trip. It all depends on if you catch a toad and if they decide to roll on you while your hand is in their mouth getting the hook out.

I got the 8 mil nitrile gloves and I think these are gonna work out much better than the 4 mil I had been using. Will let y’all know how they do after tomorrow. My hands are still destroyed from last weekend so tomorrow will be a good test. [Linked Image]

Can’t say about fishing but I’ve been using the orange gloves from AutoZone for cleaning deer and hogs as well as cleaning crappie. They look to be like the green ones in your post, just a different color. They’re pretty tough.

I have tried the nitrile gloves before and the only thing I don’t like is how much my hands sweat in them. Any tips to keep hands from sweating? I have tried antiperspirant but it didn’t help
