I used my regular paddling gloves and pogies from MEC in the days before I got my Outback.  https://www.mec.ca/en/product/5023-623/Pacific-Pogies
Hi all,

Wondered if anyone had a recommendation for good waterproof gloves that can be used for spring/fall paddling & fishing...

I do have a pair of NRS Fuse paddling gloves that can be used in dry conditions, but when they get wet don't help very much.

I bought a pair of Simms Kispiox gloves which I thought were going to work out as they were noted as 100% waterproof and felt really good on my hands, but took them out paddling in the rain one day and they soaked right through.  Thankfully it wasn't particularly cold that day and I had other gear with me as backup.
Before someone asks - the water wasn't coming in at the wrist as the cuffs were under my semi-dry top and the only part of me that was wet was my hands (although the entire glove was soaked by the end).

What thickness is that console.

Thanks but too far for me.

I am going usually 5-6km offshore.
I do you use a 2.5Hp/4 stroke (Ultra low emissions) Yamaha. Next year planning to get a 3.5Hp Tohatsu.
The part that I like about these motors is that in drive at minimum speed consume very little gas.
With 1L of gas I can troll 5-6 hours. I don't consume more than 1.5L per exit.
Also in Drive (D) with throttle at minimum the speed is around 3Km/h (ideal for trolling).
If you are in top of the fish the action is crazy.
I had last Sunday one in the net/boat jumping, second one on one rod fighting with it and a third one hooked on second rod. I need more arms.
I am hooked to Erie for a while. The fish are great to eat, the one in 2-3-4 Lb range.
If you want to come I can pull you in the fishing grounds and pull you back to the shore.
I did that with other friends that run out of batteries or arm power.
I might go once this year again there.


The following ad was just posted to Kijiji at $395.  https://www.kijiji.ca/v-camera-camcorder-lens/markham-york-region/aqua-vu-av-micro-5-dvr-dts-underwater-camera-video-recorder/1388141927?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true

$360 to members of this forum. PM me if you're interested.

This full colour digital camera includes 80 of waterproof communications cable that suspends the camera head at the desired water depth. The depth of the head and water temperature at that depth is displayed on the screen. Comes with:
   5 AV Micro 5 + DVR-DTS trolling fins
   2 AV Micro 5 + DVR-DTS stationary positioning clips
   4 1 oz. clip-on weights
   14 Aqua-Vu pole adapter
   RAM 1 ball mounting system with 6 extension fitting
   Custom carrying bag
   The original box

This camera was purchased last winter, was used only twice during the summer for about 10 each time, and is still under warranty. Replacement cost is approximately $800.

I bought it to record videos underwater from my fishing kayak but, added to rods, downrigger, fishfinder, etc. it added too much complexity and, not being a photographer, I lost interest in it. Ice fishermen say it is a useful and interesting complement to their fishing.

How far offshore and do you use a motor?

Went again on Erie today, tried another location.
Go a nice bulky 28 incher.
Same recipe: trolling offshore with crank bait close to the bottom in 50 to 70 FOW.
