Since I just started fishing seriously last summer, I do not have a scale and never really cared up until this point. Now that I'm consistently catching fish that deserve being weighed, I'm in the market. Should I get one of the kind that grips the lip? or just one with the little hook on the bottom. I'm almost primarily Bass at the moment, but occasionally I'll fish for Catfish and Crappie. Eventually, the Boga Grips will be in my price range, but I dont see that happening this summer as I'm paying off a 40" LCD HDTV. My question for the one with the hooks is where to hook the fish? Do you make a hole in the lip? Or hook into the area under the midde of the bottom lip where the gills kind of come together? I feel a little stupid asking this, but I just dont want to hurt any fish if I decide to get that kind. Also, I might be able to educate a couple buddies of mine.
