Hook'em Tips - Sharks and Gaffs?

Updated: Jun 8

Hook'em has a wide variety of Gaff products from fixed to flying and everything in between. In this article, we will be concentrating on what Gaff is best for what type of fishing you do. Remember having the right tool for the job is imperative to get your catch onboard with the least amount of fuss.


Choosing the right Gaff to suit the species will help in the long run. Small fish = small gaff and large fish = large gaff is typically the right way to go.


All Fixed Gaffs including Cast Gaffs are not recommended for shark fishing applications. If the gaffs are used inappropriately you will potentially void your warranty.


If you are intending on chasing species that are somewhat stronger and thrash more than a Snapper, or Kingie like Sharks, then you really should be looking more towards a Flying Gaff just like the one in the picture below.
