The guy using the gaff in this video better check it for a hook because he still hasn’t gotten a fish with it.
Gaffing a moving fish isn’t as easy as it sounds, but you have to choose your moment wisely.
Once you’ve got a good shot at your target, sink it in and hold on because that beautiful fish is still alive!
Now tell all that to this guy.
Warning: coarse language at the end.
Well they counted and we laughed, but that fish will probably die.
Gaffing is a must for many saltwater anglers, so know your craft and make sure to get the fish over the rails as soon as possible.
Be safe out there and keep those fishing videos coming.
