building a gig ?
I need some gig ideas. Here in Louisiana it is illegal to have a barb on your gig. I gig from a boat and am tired of reaching over the boat to lift the fish in. I was thinking about getting a 8 foot wooden dowel rod and buying two or three 6 inch galvanized threaded bolts about 1/2" inch in thickness and attaching them to the end and grinding the tips. Would this work or should I try and buy a gig head that has 4 prongs? All the heads I've seen for sale online have barbs. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
