What is a Boga Grip?
The Boga Grip is a landing, handling and weighing tool used in both freshwater and saltwater fishing. Designed for anglers who practice catch and release, it can grip a fish by encircling its lower jawbone so that despite wiggling, spinning and flopping, it could not get away. However, the Boga Grip does not rub off the protective layer of the fish or harm its scales or flesh in any way. It is then a hassle-free way of keeping tabs on your trophy-worthy catch and taking that souvenir photo before releasing the fish back into the water.
This patented tool is so easy to use, and can be operated with the use of one hand only. Not only can it be used on most species of fish, its stainless steel body is also built for durability being rust and salt-water resistant. Due to the extended handle, anglers using the Boga Grip could land a fish at a safe distance. It also has a rubberized grip so that users will always maintain a firm grasp. The device is also compact enough to be conveniently used by surf or wade fishermen.
The Boga Grip’s precision scales are not only durable but are also very accurate as certified by the IGFA (International Game Fish Association). It can handle fish double its capacity, and comes in three models:
- Model 315: This model is 9 inches in length and 9 ounces in weight, and can weigh fish up to 15 pounds.
- Model 130: This model is 10 ¾ inches in length and 1 pound in weight, and can weigh fish up to 30 pounds.
- Model 260: This model is 15 inches in length and 1.5 pounds in weight, and can weigh fish up to 60 pounds.
