Bass Pro Shops® Grip Master™ II
Save your money
This is a gripper for a non-serious fisher person. Mine lasted 2 trips before it wouldn't hold a 15" bass. Would be great for kids catching small panfish and not touching them...to save the fish from losing their slime coat...Get something better...My wife bought me these thinking it would help an old shaky guy like me, but it hasn't. Good idea,poor quality,buy better...

I haven't used this grip yet on fish, but tried it out on its grip and holding ability using up to 45 pound of weight that would be typical of a large rockfish. I even wiggled it with the weight to represent a live rockfish, and it didn't give any indications of failing to securlly hold. For me, using the grip sure will save my fingers and hand from cuts to them, and make unhooking the fish easier.

Easy to find when Kayak Fishing, I will also buy "The Fish Grip".

Used for 2 years & works fine on large trout & walleye. Makes hook & lure removal easy without having the fish wiggle & hook the fisherman. Excellent tool for catch and release, also.However, when we caught a 42" muskie last week, the jaws bent when the fish sook his tail & he escaped. Fortunately, the Rapala held and we landed him with strong fishing pliers.
