The Amish Outfitters 6'' Fish Grip is a great way to get a grip on squirmy walleye or any other fish species. The jaws open fully to 1 1/4''. They clamp shut easily and stay closed when clamped to a fish. Many anglers like using these to reduce the risk of getting a lure hook in the hand, cut by fish gills, etc. These do float as well.
