Last spring I mentioned using a boga or fish grip style tool as a method for handling fish during extremely deep eats. I know not many guys are using big rubber or dawgs on a regular basis here on the Niagara but those baits do occasionally get absolutely inhaled and can leave even the most experienced angler with a tense situation. Performing that surgery is often best handled by accessing the bait through the gillplate, but grabbing the fish by the gillplate at the same time or grabbing a gillplate when you cant locate where the hooks are can be very dangerous. Check out this quick video that demonstrates how using a boga grip in this situation can be an absolute lifesaver. Dont be too proud or have a "scars are cool" attitude when it comes to this scenario. Just another tool in the box when used properly.
