WOW
it sounds like you have a circulation problem, if you pull a sled try taking a belt and tying your sled to it so you can keep your hands free. check how tight your clothes are in the sholder and arm area also in the wrist area. then git the biggest size mittens with arm gaters you can wear you can change to somthing more manageable to fish in. remember gloves are colder than mittens. the biggest problem with cold is clothes that cut down the blood circulation.

Lots of really great advice in this thread, the only thing that I can add is something that my buddy that taught me how to ice fish years ago told me. Wear a separate pair of shoes and cotton socks on the way up to the lake (the cotton socks absorb moisture from your feet) and change into fresh wool socks and your boots when you arrive. Warm dry feet make a lot of difference in how you will feel when you are sitting on the ice for a while.

Kast I agree...I always change to my poly liners and wool socks when I arrive at the lake..Also learned to take my chemical toe warmers out of the package about 20 minutes before arrival.
