I got a couple of comments and some emails in regards to the use of the Boga Grip for landing carp. It seems that some folks feel that the grips harm the fish by ripping their lips. I suspect that those of you who have had problems were grabbing the fish by their soft mouth parts. Since I started using my Boga Grip I've landed dozens of carp up to 24 lbs and have yet to tear out their mouth parts. Of course I take time to make sure that I grab every fish in the lower jaw, right in the middle of the U shape that is formed by the mandible (lower jaw bone). As long as the fish aren't being harmed I'm going to continue to use the Boga to land carp. Thanks for the comments and emails.
