Default Shrimp/Fish poke "proof" fishing gloves

I've researched and seen some older threads on this but thought I'd bring it back up. This goes well with the recent post warning of bacteria in water.

I'm currently dealing with a couple of infected spots on the tips of 2 of my fingers after getting stuck by a shrimp and/or fish this past Sunday in Mobile Bay. Currently on some antibiotics and cream for the infected areas and luckily the Dr. said it doesn't appear to be Vibrio as it should be worse if it was. After this clears up, I'm gonna be a glove guy. Most of the gloves I've seen recommended are 3/4 finger gloves... this would not have helped me this past weekend.

So now to the question: Does anyone have any first hand recommendations on full finger gloves that have some poke protection, not just sun protection. I don't want to do garden or mechanics gloves as I believe they'll get too hot. I've seen the Aftco, Pelagic, etc gloves made for handling marlin but I'm worried those may be too bulky for my trout rod. Any recommendations are appreciated. Thanks.

At work we use a brands Ironclad and Hex. It's incredible the amount of different industrial gloves available for every imaginable application. If you have a Grainger near by visit them.

This cut is going on three weeks tomorrow and finally isn't sore. I don't think there are any gloves made that will allow for enough dexterity to handle live bait like shrimp and croaker with full fingers.

I am a metal fabricator so my hands are really tough and thick skinned, so take this with a grain of salt. Dry my hands are tough as heck, wet seems anything will slice them. I have had things like that happen and just being willing to dig at it with my box cutter has stopped me from ever needing a doctor.

I went to CV S and bought a bottle of chlorohexidine antiseptic soap. Put some in a small 3 oz spray bottle. Spray some on my hands after I get stuck (pin fish). No infection and cuts clear up very fast. To hot in the gulf for gloves.

After a few sticks from pinfish, with the last one required a little professional help to remove a tiny piece of spine that I couldn't find, I now let my bait dip net act as a buffer when hooking pins or squirrelfish as bait. Just hold 'em in the net, which keeps them from flopping around, the insert hook.
No new injuries (so far).

Almost every guy who does this for a living will tell you that diluted chlorine bleach (Clorox) is their standdard 'Go To' for small cuts and fish fin sticks. My experience is don't let those things close up to soon. Keep them draining.
