Default gig designs

<BLOCKQUOTE dir=ltr style="MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px"><P align=left>I am putting together my gig and wondering if anyone uses a single point gig or is everyone using a 3 to 5 point gig. I was thinking about using a single with the folding barbedtip from a speargun, seams like it would certainly hold the fish on and not damage as much meat as one with 5 points on it. What do y'all think? Suggestions or comments appreciated.</BLOCKQUOTE>

i personally use a 4 prong gig...but your idea seems like it would work. personally i like the added security of the 4 prongs...i can eat the meat with a few holes in it

i prefer a 4 as well...with the single prong they have a tendacy to spin a bunch,possibly tearing off. however the way your talking about making it, itwould probally work...

With experience, you will start taking head shots without even thinking about it and not run the risks of putting big holes and sand in the flesh with body shots.The head is tuff and they are not likely to come off the gig so don't be afraid to use multi point barbs.

Wow! that'll keep'em on! I prefer a five prong, but right now am working with some smaller 4 prongs that work really well. They don't damage the meat very much. Those custom gigs made from stainless steel that are around are what I want, 5 prong ones. I don't have to stick'em like King Neptune! LOL!

??? FLOUNDER ???? AW crap I thought we we Halibut Giggin. The last time my Buddy went out with me he looked at the gig and said "I think were gonna need abigger boat?" Now I realize it was just to hold the Gig.

Actually it does look bigger in the picture than it really is. But it is solid.
