Getting the fish aboard...

Our go to gaff aboard "So It Goes" is a commercial halibut gaff which is pretty common on the west coast...


They're available in sizes ranging from about a foot to a yard or more in length. For our boat, 24-inches is just about right.

The other sort of gaff I'd like to have aboard is the sort which is the fusion of a baseball bat married to a spike...

Obviously, gaffs are not catch-and-release friendly so you also need a means of dealing with fish you'll want to release and these plastic lip locks inspired by vise-grips are just the thing...
