I would have to count that as a caught fish. Very nice Kingfish and at least you got to see how big he was. WTG!

I think you got a "leader touch" count it as caught and released. You really didn't want all those teeth slashing around the kayak anyway.

i like that gaff spear thing... what is the advantage of using that VS a bend gaff i would think it would be harder to land one not being able to pull up?

If that was a kingfish, they got teeth and they ain't afraid to use them. Releasing outside the kayak, away from your legs is OK.

The spear gaff is used to subdue offshore fish. You stick them in the head region and the idea is that the "shock" of the hit will kill the fish. Check out the "30 Miles Out" videos on You Tube. They use the spear gaffs all the time there.

Pretty fancy stake out pole. It needs a longer line attached.

Yep... that where I got the idea...great videos.

With a conventional gaff you are pulling the point (and the fish) towards yourself. With the speargaff you are stabbing away and keeping the fish away.

A longer lanyard would probably be a good idea.
