Boga / lip tool maintenance

Every November I bury mine in my yard 3' down just before the ground freezes. 

 

The semi-permafrost creates an ideal storage environment with a perfect balance of pH and moisture control for six months of the year. 

 

Twelve seasons now and she still looks like the day she came out of the box.

I never ever did any maintenance to my boga since I bought it years ago. 

 

Any tips on getting it to work like new?  

 

 

Buy a spray can of Corrosion X from the hardware store.  Spray the inside through the jaw slot at the bottom every once in a while.

Googans who don't want to get their hands all icky use those things. Make sure you lube the carabiner that attaches it to your utility belt after every use.

Keep thumbing those bluefish. :)

Lou Caruso has a couple videos on you tube on how to completely disassemble the Boga grip. He also shows how to paint the numbers so that they are easier to see.

As far as regular maintenance goes, I usually wash really well with freshwater and follow up with a spray of WD40.

What he said. It doesn't hurt to give it a spray mid season.
