Fishing pliers are very important to have whether you are fishing off land or in a boat. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cut myself from reaching in and trying to remove the lure from the fish’s mouth without them. Some fish’s teeth are razor sharp, this can be very dangerous. If you hit a vein on your wrist look out, scary I know isn’t it. So be safe and get a good set of pliers from our store. I’d go with a set of pliers that have a long snout, that way you can get deep down in a fish’s mouth.
