remeber when this topic use to get everyone all fired up
Still does, LOL!!!
Is that a trick question?
No Gaffs. CPR all the way.
Nope, Some folks just can't stand the Peace and Tranquility on here, LOL!!! That will all change on this thread, LMAO!!!
I usually use a harpoon!!!LOL!!!
or some good ol' TNT! LMAO!!! :lol:
Okay - I'm new - I'll bite -
If you gaff; it you had better release it into 375 degree oil otherwise you
had better use a net!!
Eat catfish - they sell it at Safeway!!!
does anyone else besides me use the shotgun and some #4 buck when the fish gets within 20 feet of the boat and surfaces or am i a lone wolf on this one? LOL just a joke, i use a net all the time. the only time i use a gaff is if im tryin to land A) a big gar cuz they tend to tear my net up a little. or B) a carp, cuz they are to big for my net and im gunna cut em up for bait anyway.
I only use a gaff to get drunken idiots outa the water. LOL!
Mostly try to bounce em in the boat. That doesn't mean they are small, its just the way we learned grown up here fishing on the salt boats, and off the rock jetties..... Used a dock stick with a combat knife tied to it to do in a shark last spring... had no net or a gaff big enough that day....
"No gafs on cats.... CPR" "use hand holds only"
if i could figure out how to gaf those stupid asian carp maybe i would have a new hobby..
I wonder if you would be allowed to use the like clay pigeons, LOL!!! Would add to your skills as a marksman while helping the inviroment at the same time, LMAO!!! Not to mention how much fun you could have shootin them as they jumped!!!!
I think you are on to something, that does sound like fun.
Just think there would be no more yelling pull.
Bummer is you would have to use steel shot.
I was watching "Gettin Close" with Lee and Tiffany once where they were shooting the carp instinctive style from seats on the back of a slow running boat. Looked like they had a blast doing it. It sure would help the reflexes a bit.
00 Buckshot. Helps get them in the net.
Gaffs are not welcome in my boat..... Period!!!
I used one back before I even knew what CPR was, we were keeping big fish. I didn't like the Gaff at all, it's hard to use without messing the fish up really bad. Our big landing net does a great job for us.
Although, a Gaff can be used a certain way to where it does not hurt the fish, you have to put it through thier mouth like a hook, it's kind of hard to do.
I'll stick to using the net.:smile2:
I will only use a gaff on carp when I am carp fishing to make my bait. If I am catfishing you better believe there is not a gaff around... I do have a shotgun in the truck for when things get going real bad.... :big_smile:
Don't believe I have ever see a gaff used on any fresh water lakes, only
landing nets...crappie would be hard to gaff...LOL
