Default Gig Pole Lengths

I've been doing some searching on gig poles for flounder wading. I've found a place where the shortest length is an 8' gigging pole made out of anodized aluminum. It comes in a one piece or a two piece model (two 4' sections). The two piece model might come in handy since I have a kayak and would be a good pole to have since I can break it down into two pieces and paddle to a place I normally don't go since it's a good 1 mile from my truck's parking place. I then could put the two sections together and start looking for flounder. I figure it would be easier to transport too in the bed of my truck if it's a two piece model.

Below is the place I found on the internet and I think I found the place by looking over some old posts on here. The direct link to the gigging poles is below.

For wade flounder gigging, what length pole do you use when you go wade flounder gigging? Your opinions, both pro and con, would be welcomed by me.

I bought one of the skinny water 12' poles and the 5 prong gig head and love it.

However, I think you are on the right track with the two piece. I have not wade gigged in years but would think you would not want a real long one for that type of gigging.

bowdiddly,

I think I'm going to call "Skinny" and ask them how their multi port head can fit both a 1/4" or 3/8" threaded rod gig head. I don't see how this is possible.

Mine is 3/8" so you would be right that it would not take a 1/4" threaded head. It will take various tapered socket type heads like the B&M.
I have two B&M PK9's that I keep as backups in the boat. Although they are black iron steel and only last about one season, they sure do a number on the fish and none get off. If I could get one made of stainless it would be the ticket.
