What is the pier gaff??
The pier gaff is basically a big giant treble type hook, that is weighted. You attach them to a rope ( tie in at the top) and drop them down to gaff and retreive your catch. These are used when the fish is simply to heavy to bring up onto the pier with just your fishing rod. Rather then break your line, just drop your pier gaff down , snag your fish, and bring it up
Our pier gaffs use a 16/0 Bronze treble hook, and weigh 1.5lbs
