    Flounder gigging question????

    Hi, I was shopping for gigs today and saw there are 2 frog gigs. A 3 prong and a 5 prong.

    Since there is a $2.00 difference, I was wondering which one do you flounder gigging folks like?

    Also, what kind of pole to you attach to them and what kind of lighting do you use? Thank you so much!!! :dinnertime:

    there should be two types of gigs. The one you need is a flounder gig not a frog gig. The flounder gig is much thicker and should already be mounted on a pole (usually with one or two prongs). Frog gigs are not usually strong enough for salt water. A large flounder can bend a frog gig and the barbs can damage the meat.

    Why knot is right. I always use the 2 prong if I'm in a boat as it is just a little bit more holding them on when I throw them in the boat. Flounder gigs have no barbs.

    Thanks everyone!! I went to Gander Mountain today and got a real flounder gig there, it has 1 straight, stainless prong.

    Willie, I like the idea for the light. I had been wondering if one of those lights you can wear on your head would work.

    Anyhow, I got my gigger, almost ready to get some flounder. .... :dinnertime:

    The light on your head won't work as it won't penetrate the water.

    some academy's carry the 12volt lights and fishing tackle umlimited on 45s has them.i have also taking a pelican submersible flashlight and duct taped to a stick.the pelican brands are waterproof and work good under the water.
