    Re: Making pier gaff

    Bill,that style is OK,but the best gaff were the long shank ones with a lead cone at the bottom. Not sure who designed it, but there are a few floating around,TLII has one(by the way,rumor around the store is he's getting married so I'm sure he won't be needing it if you want to see what it looks like.His user name needs to be changed to PWII).

    Re: Making pier gaff

    I have one of those gaffs and absolutely love it. The one thing I really like about it is my hand is away from the fish's mouth when removing the gaff.

    Re: Making pier gaff

    I too would love to see a picture....my ling gaff has a looong shank for that reason...made more for shark ,at the time I made it....but bring it in the spring for the ling season,
    these aren't welded yet and can be lengthen out with the pipe....not sure they need to be heavier, as the pipe is thick wall..... so the prong's fit right(I do like a heavier gaff so the wind isn't as much a factor)....but if you think it would help to add weight in the bottom... I can do it....the safer the better for these..... as they will be given away.and would hate to hear someone might get hurt with them....thanks for the input

    Re: Making pier gaff

    Thanks!! I only wish I knew what I was looking for :angry: but that doesn't look like it oke: a long shank, but no lead on the bottom as John described , looks like a square piece of stainless with prongs welded on....maybe someone will come up with a picture before it gets warm up here and I get out in the garage and start welding, then it will be too late....Oh well
