Cleaning your catch after a day of fishing at the lake is a messy process. There’s no way around that.

You can cut down on some of the mess with fishing-cleaning gloves, such as Smith's Mr. Crappie Slab Slanger gloves that are machine-washable, cut-resistant and shrink-resistant. Named after famed crappie fisherman Wally "Mr. Crappie" Marshall, the new gloves list for $15.99.

Here’s more on the gloves from Smith's:

Many successful fishing trips end with a visit to the cleaning table. Here, the day’s catch is transformed into healthy and delicious table fare to be enjoyed by anglers both young and old. Fish cleaning is not without its own hazards, posed by sharp knives and by the fish themselves.

Mr. Crappie – Wally Marshall – has been teaching the world how to catch and clean crappies for decades, and leveraged his expertise to help Smith’s Consumer Products develop the new Mr. Crappie Slab Slanger Cut-Resistant Gloves: Your newest fish cleaning ally.

Smith’s Mr. Crappie Slab Slanger Cut-Resistant Gloves are designed for safe fish handling and processing in any kind of weather. These innovative non-slip gloves are manufactured from food-grade high-performance polyethylene, which is four times stronger than leather and provides Cut Level 5 protection for your hands – perfect when cleaning fish with Smith’s razor-sharp fillet knives.

Similarly, the Slab Slanger Cut-Resistant Gloves shrug off fish spines, fins, gill plates and even the random swallowed fish hook that anglers may encounter at the cleaning table.

Let’s face it: Fish cleaning is a messy job. Happily, Smith’s Mr. Crappie Slab Slanger Cut-Resistant Gloves are both machine- and hand-washable, so it’s easy to keep them clean and sanitized after a long workout at the fillet table. These thoughtfully-designed gloves are also shrink-resistant, keeping them soft and flexible even after repeated washing.

Moreover, Smith’s Slab Slanger glove material is manufactured for maximum breathability, so your hands stay cool and comfortable while transforming fresh fish into perfect fillets. Avid anglers will appreciate that Smith’s Slab Slanger Cut-Resistant Gloves provide welcome hand protection during other activities using sharp equipment or materials, such as food preparation, cutting, wood carving, slicing, carpentry, metalwork, and more.

Pairs of Smith’s Mr. Crappie Slab Slanger Cut-Resistant Gloves are available in size XL – suitable for most hands – and have an MSRP of $15.99.
