Neat little fish lip grabber that I use ...

.... Works perfect on panfish like bluegills and sunfish and Crappie and I also use it a lot on the native brook trout.

Why do you need to grab the lip of a pan fish?
I wanted something for the kayak to help me out when I got into a toothy critter like a pike or a dog fish. And I bought of the regular fish grabber doo hickeys.
I dont like mine. Its almost impossible to manipulate with one hand. And of course the pike NEVER cooperates as I feebly attempt to grab his spike filled mouth, while the kayak aimlessly drifts downstream at a record rate through leaning treelines snapping and snagging my poles, ripping them out of the kayak and/or wrapping around everything before spinning the boat back around the other direction cause now it's acting like an anchor point, moments before the rod snaps in half.  :mad2:

 I fly fish so usually I am trying to remove a very small fly with forceps and a pan fishes mouth is too small for me to lip like I would a bass.   I have those same grippers that you have in the picture and I like them for pickerel and pike.  Sounds like you need a quick release anchor on that kayak  :biggrin:

Jim I had some lip grippers like yours in the pic. I was trying to get about a 38" musky into my kayak. I clipped them on his lip and he flopped and snapped them into 2 pieces like nothing, then broke my line. :madd: I have metal grippers now.
