A few more scraps

Hit the beach early today and caught a nice sunrise.  Not many teeth since there was a lot of sand piled up.  Had to resort to sifting again - man that water is cold on your hands.  Did manage to catch a decent mako before a wave covered it back up with sand.  Also found a nice small posterior thresher and the usual small stuff.

Cold Hands? - 12/8/2008

Nice trip, very nice sunrise pic too. Any time out on the bay is fun. As far as cold hands go, I use neoprene gloves and have had several types. So far, the ones that I liked the most were called Glacier Gloves. You get them from Bass Pro Shops. If you go on line you can click on fly fishing, vests and outerwear, gloves and you'll see them. They're about $30. They have their own brand for about $13, but you have to use their search function to find them (type in neoprene gloves). I also use the Cabelas version, the one that looks like a mitt, and they work OK too. I like these two because you can flip back a finger or more to pick things out of your sifter or off the beach, etc. You can find neoprene gloves at WalMart or local sporting goods places that have fishing gear, but the finger option isn't quite as good. That said, you can create your own "finger" slots by using a carpet knife or simply cut the finger tips off. Full neoprene gloves are warmer even when wet because they insulate. Partial neoprene (neoprene and fleece combos) are OK but not quite as warm. Fleece lined of either works well too. Take this from an ice fisherman, they're pretty good, but warm pockets also help when all else fails! Content Quality : 10 of 10
