There is no better sound than that of an all thread gig going thru one of those 20" fish!!! It sounds like a zip tie closing, and when you hear that just flip him in the boat. Gott'em! Last night. in about 3 hours. We had ten fish that the smallest was 19.5" with the biggest being 23. Gonna hit it again tonight

Nice design

I like it. Been considering using some SS aluminum pipe and threading it to do the same. The flat bar look just as useful. Mabe going that route now. Thanks for the feed back on your rig. I used #20 ring shank SS nails before. What diameter of all thread did you use?

Cheers,

Bob

PS: Darn nice haul:thumbup:. Got to fix my darn battery again.

That's why I've been using them for the past 20yrs.
Oh they will get a little worn(don't hold as good) after a while because wear and tear on the threads. I just started using a brand new one and I can tell a difference in the way it holds fish compare to one that 10-15yrs old.

You're right Five. I've pushed a few to China, but for the most part they work great. I've lost some huge fish on barbs that they wouldn't hold. I guess it's a confidence thing with the threaded gigg. I've broken two poles this year on fish, but havn't lost a fish because it tore off. The two you are holding in your avatar is what I'm talking about. Great Fish
