Good Set of Saltwater Pliers

13 posts in this topic

Can anyone recommend a good set of pliers for the surf. I've tried multiple kinds washed

and oiled after each use and still rusted up to unusable condition.

That's all any pliers will do I did see an alumineum set at gender mnt fore $30.00 but thay wher standard 7" NO GOOD for if you get a shark on I just buy the chepist sets and 3 in 1 oil holds up like you wouldn't beleave thay will rust but with that oil you can get more than a years worth Of use out

Yup, buy cheap ones cause if they don't rust, they'll walk eventually. Regular old needle nosed pliers work fine.

Cheap is the way to go. Just use a good oil to loosen them up when needed.

I think cororsion-x is better. And you don't need to keep it in your bag. Just make it part of you "clean up" after a trip. Wash, dry and treat rods, wash, dry and lube as needed reels, wash & dry end-tackle (lures, sinkers, swivels etc.) and wash and lube your pliers. This of course after washing your boat and flushing and washing your motor. Then go take a shower and THEN hug your wife.

my favorite and best i have ever bought. Browning fishing pliers, they come with a sheath and cord so they dont walk. they are pricy, but i got em on sale, i have had them for over 3 years now and never once have i oiled them, cutting blade still cuts braid. all i do normally is wipe them off after unhooking a fish.

they are 7 inches, and yes i like some a little longer for sharks, but my small hand gaff or de-hooker works well with sharks....
