BlackTip Recompression Tool

BlackTip Recompression Tool

At February’s Miami International Boat Show, West Marine awarded a grand prize for Green Product of the Year to the BlackTip Catch & Release Recompression Tool. The tool allows anglers to release fish at depth without venting or unnecessary handling. The angler clamps the tool to a fish’s jaw, adds a weight (5 pounds is recommended for a 20-pound fish) and lowers the fish and tool with a downrigger or rod. Upon reaching bottom, the tool automatically releases the fish. The tool features an anodized-aluminum body, brass swivels and pins, and PVC-coated jaws. Cost is $49.99.
