Product Overview

A West Marine Innovative Product:

Prevents damage to fish by allowing release back down to full depth without venting of the fish’s swim bladder. Used in conjunction with a handline, rod and reel combo or downrigger, the design utilizes a weight which holds the tool’s spring-loaded jaws securely, but safely on the fish’s mouth, until, when it reaches the bottom, spring tension is relieved, causing the jaws to open and release the fish. Eliminates unnecessary handling and potential damage to the fish’s gills or protective slime coat. Anodized aluminum body, brass swivels and pins, PVC-coated jaws. Sold without weights for use with sinkers appropriate to the weight of fish being released. 

  • Scissor type jaws extend from 1" to 3"
  • 12" L x 1 3/16" diameter
