Keep Deep-Caught Fish Alive
Most tournament fishermen have pulled a fish from deep water at some point, and know the pain of struggling all day to keep it alive, only to weigh it in dead at the end of the day.
When pulled from deep water, the air bladder swells and will cause the fish to "belly up" in your live well. If it does make it to weigh in alive, it's chance of survival when released is minimal.
Attach one or more FlipClips™ to the bottom fin and your fish no longer needs to focus it's energy on turning over to submerge their gills back into the water. The FlipClip™ is a fish friendly accessory that significantly increases a fish's chances of survival.
Just How Does it Work?
When a bass is pulled from deep water, their air bladder is likely to swell, causing the fish to "belly up" in your live-well.
By attaching the FlipClip™ to your fish's anal fin, the weight will cause your fish to be stabilized. This forces your fish's gills to remain submerged in the water.
By having the FlipClip™ applied to your fish, it reduces their stress from limiting the amount of energy that would otherwise be spent to upright itself in your live-well.
Research has shown that the FlipClip™ is an effective tool that greatly increases a fish's chances of survival.
About the Clip of the FlipClip™
The clip of the FlipClip™ is a very important element of the product. The nickel-plated clip provides the perfect amount of tension to firmly grasp the fin of your fish. The nickel-plating also prevents the clip from rusting.
The 'teeth' of the clip are textured to create enough friction to not slide off the fin, while simultaneously preventing trauma.
The weighted portion of each FlipClip™ is rubber coated. This coating prevents scratching to the bottom of your live-well.
Colors for Culling
FlipClip™ 3-packs include three different colors. These colors allow FlipClips™ to also be used as a marker to identify the smallest fish within your live-well so you can quickly locate which fish should be thrown back, a process called culling.
