    Clean them thoroughly with alcohol or another aniseptic and then super glue them shut. It works better than you think.

    I'm not a doctor so don't blame me if you don't clean it out enough and get an infection... the super glue is easy enough to remove should you start to see red puffiness or puss...

    Clean them with hydrogen peroxide and then put triple antibiotic cream on them. The water temp is still low so the bad bacteria is not that active. Once the water temp gets above 75, I would see my doctor if I got cut on the bay. I personally know two people who have lost limbs due to being 1) pinched by and crab and 2) having open cuts and swimming in the bay.

    After a long day of fishing and getting my hands all cut up, I usually soak them in a mixture of hot water, rubbing alcohol, peroxide and dial antibacterial hand soap. This works for me

    Also, wearing these protects my hands from sun, spiky fish, and braided line. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00U7GC3XY...152&th=1&psc=1

    I hate braid cuts. I never get the cuts trying to hold the braid, but dangit if I don't always forget to put on some gloves when I'm tying knots with wet hands. I think I spend half of the warmer months with a cut on the first crease of my index fingers.

    braid cuts are like paper cuts, they hurt worse than losing a finger.

    I rinsed with peroxide, put neosporine on them, and used band aids. There were 6 different cuts on one hand. They feel much better today.
