Default Fishing gloves

Wondering if this would a good idea, when reef fishing some how I always get tasked with unhooking and releasing of all the shorts and junk fish. I also often cut my hand on the braid when I check drag.

Anybody have any recommendation /comments if they like or hate wearing gloves and if like, brand/model they would suggest I try.

If not obvious, at least several open figures as I also am tasked with rigging/knot tying.

Highly recommend AFTCO's fishing gloves. They have several different versions that would all fit your bill. Great quality and they hold up well.

Go to harbor freight, they have a wide selection of gloves cheap plus you can get multiples and different styles for different needs. The mechanix style gloves work great.

I hate wearing gloves but I have some kastkings, aftco, mechanix. I usually end up wearing one to handle fish. One good tip is to put a neosporane on my hands when I get home.

i think they're a bit pricey but i got em as a good deal from my friend who was a sponsor. Going on Season 4 now, some wear but still up to the task. I do mostly jigging and popping and only wear it on my winding hand (right) which I also use to dehook small game

I keep a few pair of these around the boat - they last and they are reasonable

Don't have any experience with these, but have always seemed interesting as they have a magnetic clip that attaches to your shorts or boat. Can't imagine the clip would hold up in salt water, but worth a shot:

You could try these:

On sale at Beall's for $6. I just got a pair; they seem nice, but I haven't used them yet.
They are primarily for sun protection, but have some additional protection on the palms. Good for those small nuisance fish you are talking about.

I bought the fish monkey half finger guide gloves, very comfortable to wear all day but they were completely destroyed by landing (and jaw grabbing) 3 mature tarpon, which is what the picture of the package had the model doing lol. They tore in the thin areas without the reinforced pad.




I called and requested them to replace them with the half finger stubby guide gloves but i haven't used them yet. They do seem tougher but less comfortable. Don't imagine they will last more than a season of tarpon fishing at best.

Only gloves I can stand wearing are heavy leadering gloves when leadering a large fish. Other than that i keep a wet towel handy for handling fish if they are being released or are an extra spiny type. Better for the fish than a dry glove removing their protective slime.

Leather Wells Lamont gloves in a 4-pack from Costco. Work well for leadering mono, cut resistance when handling braid and chafing from cranking the winches. Far more comfortable for extended wear than any petroleum based synthetic gloves. Fingers can just be cut off if you want nose pickers. In time they will conform to the shape of your hand.

Price is great, but shipping
You should stop polishing that boat and fish that thing. This way you could give me a better review of how they are working out.

So far these, aftco short pump, are my 2 favorite from the window shopping efforts.

Seconded on the harbor freight gloves. The black ones are $4.99 all day every day and I use them a bunch. They hold up shockingly well for the price.

Don’t buy the yellow “leather” ones from HF. We did it one year for a Bahamas trip and all of us wound up with yellow stained hands. They all synthetic black ones do NOT do that.

Nice!! I was originally gonna comment on you being a wimp and all for needing any gloves at all considering those small fish you've been catching. Go into Bealls and get em...no shipping charges. I have the Aftco's and the Pelagic's and like them both, and they have held up over several years. Pelagic's seem to run small in size.
Boats always need polish/wax and it gives me something to do on windy days.

After peeling a 150lb mono wrap out of the flesh of my hand and seeing bone before the blood took over I decided that I won't say leadering gloves are for sissys anymore. On the other hand........ only sissys wear those trendy high cost fishing gloves just to wind a reel!!!!

i just bought 3 different ones in the local home depot.
2 pair of the thin ones als the ones from Amazon above as i cut all my fingers freeing 6 lobsters from a ghost net
1 pair of the thicker orange ones to grab billfish on the bill
There are the more expensive ones from Aftco/Assasin/etc and they may are more comfortable
Buy the ones your budget can afford and they will be fine

I use the cut gloves our carpenters wear. Rubber cut resistant palm and fairly cheap.
