Default Fishing gloves?

This weekend as I was releasing an Atlantic Red Snapper I got two finger tips sliced pretty good from the fins. I have fishing gloves but they don't cover the tips of my fingers.

Anyone have a lighter weight glove that helps avoid cutting up your hands while handling fish? I'm almost thinking just keeping a really large pair of filet gloves on the deck I can grab and put on quickly?

Thanks!

AFTCO makes a full range of fishing gloves. All awesome products! Highly recommend. Look at their release gloves.

I use Huskvarna chainsaw gloves and they work great. Very supple but tough.

I use aftco bluefever gloves. Some have tips some don't. I only wear them when fighting fish so I don't need to be able to tie knots.

Lindy offer protection in the palm area and full finger,but this makes them a little stiff. Good for spiny baits.Run extremely small.

The Lindy do look tough as well as the Aftco. Do you guys wear these most the day or put them on as soon as you get the fish in the boat? Thinking I could wear my thin ones without fingertips and slip an XL pair over them to handle the fish once in the boat?

I typically only wear glove while handling a fish boatside. On occasion, i do wear a pair of my AFTCO gloves while fighting a fish, but this is only during long fights (1+ hours). AFTCO a pair of gloves for all kinds of uses - all day sun protection to heavy duty leadering.

I have yet to find a glove that doesn't quickly fall apart. You can go to Harbor Freight and get gloves for $12 that work as well as the $50 "fishing" gloves and they both fall apart at the same rate. I use different gloves for different purposes. I have expensive Pelagic wiring gloves and other wiring gloves that I make myself along with various Harbor Freight and name brand fishing gloves. I spend money where it makes a difference and for me, it doesn't make a difference with gloves.

Heavy Leader/Wiring Gloves: Aftco WireMax

Like others have said, one pair of gloves isn't going to cut it. I almost 90% of the time use the orange mono gloves. Never use the Lindy's. But they are nice the one or two times I used them to fillet prickly little fish like black sea bass or similar. I've honestly never used the wire max Aftcos. Be kinda cool if I had to lol.

Crap with them is they melt and stick together if you forget them on the boat.

Gloves are for pussies. Take your fish off the hook like a man....

Wells Lamont leather gloves in the five-pack at Costco.

Obadu wiring gloves when the poop hits the propeller.
