Not for nothing, but Boga grips are the worst invention ever, pretty much. Some guys up here did a study on striped bass and found that ones weighing over 20 lbs. that were held up by Bogas or just by the lips with no belly support had close to a 100% mortality rate if released. The combined weight of their stomachs and intestines is enough to cause them to rip internally when fish over 20 lbs. are held vertically with no stomach support.
Doesn't mean I'm not gonna watch the show tonight, just pics like that kill me 'cause you know the guy has the right intentions on releasing the fish. Pass the word on to make sure people are releasing fish that are actually going to live...
