Landing the Tigerfish
Tigerfish are sensitive and should be handled with utmost care during the landing. Ask your guide for assistance if needed.
Use a soft landing net to keep the Tigerfish at the side of the boat and let it recover for a few seconds before attempting to remove the fly using fishing pliers.
Note that a BogaGrip can be used to revive (recover) and release the Tigerfish. A BogaGrip should never be used to lift the fish out of the water.
Rather grip the Tigerfish by the tail and hold it horizontally behind the pectoral fins. To avoid injury, keep your hands and fingers clear of the Tigerfish’s sharp teeth.
