HAN­DLE WITH CARE

Sport Fishing - - GEAR GUIDE -

Many of the lip-grip man­u­fac­tur­ers in­ter­viewed in­de­pen­dently stated that they be­lieve their weight scales do not cause phys­i­cal dam­age to fish or in­hibit fu­ture feed­ing abil­ity — when the fish is hung ver­ti­cally. An­glers who want to weigh a fish be­fore re­lease can play it safe by weigh­ing a knot-free net with the fish in­side the net. For pictures with a lip grip­per, fish­er­men can hold the fish hor­i­zon­tally with a hand un­der­neath the belly to al­le­vi­ate pres­sure on the fish’s lower jaw and to sup­port the in­ter­nal or­gans.
