Lip Gripper.
« on: June 10, 2019, 03:27:11 PM »
In my quest to organize things on my boat, I have discovered a simple way to keep track of my “Lip-Grippers”. These are great for handling Bass while removing the hook and releasing them unharmed. We are always looking for them.

I had previously mounted a bait tank against the back of the boat. The stainless steel square pad eyes that were used for the strap holding the bait tank make a perfect place for “Lip Grippers”. I even ordered a 2nd set from my son for an Early Father’s day present. 😂 My older ones are faded from years of use.

I need to start using "Lip Grippers". Too many stab wounds but luckily no infections. Where is a good place to get them (Grippers not infections)?

Nice Sand Bass! How heavy a fish will those grippers hold?

I usually gaff fish over 20 lbs., but I think it would work on pretty big fish.

My friend Bernie got stung by one, he said the pain was something he never wants to experience again. Then last season we caught a sculpin in our hoop and his first words were, ah sh*t, I'm not touching it  :jester: I grabbed the sculpin with a pair of long needle nose and toss it overboard.

I’m with Bernie. Now Sculpin are on my list along with Black Widow spiders.

I couldn’t find my Lip Gripper, so I grabbed the hook with a long nosed pliers and shook him off, but he flipped around and got me.

I was lucky the same didn't happen to me, sometimes gripping them with pilers can fail.
I'm going to have to get a pair of grippers like yours, the pair I have the "gripper" and my fingers are to close to the fish.
