GAFFS AND SABIKI
Product - a must-have for private boaters
a new CharkBait exclusive every private boater will
appreciate. I know I do, I've owned a Seeker Gaff for
probably 20 years now, have always preferred it's feel and
weight to aluminum gaffs. Mine's old, but still a great gaff
to own and use.
Seeker builds a great rod, they are among the top tier of
rod manufacturers in the world. In my estimation Seeker and
Calstar are the top producers of finished rods, period, end
of statement. Well, I was over at their factory a few weeks
ago talking with their production manager, and we struck
upon an idea... The fruits of which are posted here.
Seeker's gaffs are
nothing short of exceptional, made on one of their blanks
with a very sharp and strong hook. Given the use of a rod
blank for the shaft, there's a certain springiness, a bit of
"action" and better feel to the device. In the case of the
gaffs we have to offer, they feature a nice Turks head, use
of tuna cord and the prettiest darn wrap job you've ever
seen on a gaff. Seeker's using some of their better blanks
in production of our gaffs, in lengths of approximately 4, 5
and 6 feet. All the hooks are the same size, about 2.5"
which is a perfect size for most species of fish in my
opinion. No, it's not a proper gaff for LARGE tuna, the hook
gap is too small, same for larger mako or thresher sharks.
But, for the majority of what we catch, from smaller
schoolie tuna, albacore, yellowtail, bonito, bass and
barracuda, it's perfection.
The gaffs are available using a
quality black Seeker rod blank, but we also had them make
some up using Seeker's new Hercules blank in red. Both gaffs
are flat out beautiful pieces of equipment, and will be
things you will absolutely love owning for many, many years
Rounding out our line of
gaffs are four new ones of our own production.
things a step further, we also have made up some aluminum
shaft gaffs, floaters, with 4" gap hooks in several sizes.
These are made in our classic red anodized color finish,
with stainless steel hooks and also offer a hook guard. The
gaffs also come with a cover, and are available in 3, 4, 5
and 6 foot lengths.
Pictured showing off the new gaffs
is Blake (the guy below, not the cute gal to the left...who
actually works in the office here), our newest full-time staff member here at CB
Huntington Beach. Blake comes to us fresh out of military
service, Army, after serving in Korea and Afghanistan where
he earned his Purple Heart. He's an avid inshore fisherman,
surf, bay, you name it he gets out there and does it. If you
are local and trying to discover where to go to catch some
fish, see Blake, he'll put you on 'em. He's also been
handling the majority of spooling for clients who order
on-line, ties a darn good knot!
Your Shopping Cart
Every boat needs at
least one good gaff, and probably two or three are the norm.
Each a bit different. We have a couple 4 inch gap fixed head
gaffs for you. They're available in four or six foot
lengths, made from fiberglass with a meaty stainless steel
hook. It's a perfect size
for dealing with schoolie tuna, albacore, yellowtail,
halibut and most any fish in that 15-50# class...or better
if you're lucky. We've opted for a bit sharper cut on our
hooks than any
you'll see running
up to $100 range. The gauge of the stainless steel
is larger, the dual sharpened point offering greater
penetration, as well as strength.
Our shaft is also fairly heavy, testament to it's durability
and strength. It's solid, not hollow, and the gaff features
long lasting EVA handle material to provide a secure grip.
If you are looking for a good quality all purpose gaff, and
strength is a consideration, this powerhouse is a dandy
value and something you'll enjoy having aboard the boat for
a lot of years.
got another CharkBait exclusive for you, a
new Sabiki fishing rod that incorporates a few
innovations that might
interest you. Our new
rods are made to fish the type of bait we
typically hope to bring up on a sabiki. They are
a little stouter than what's been available and
are available in six and seven foot lengths.
Because of that they're fine for use catching
mackerel, squid, sardines or whatever gets
tempted by your offerings. The rods are
two-piece, separating before the grip, and they
now feature a nicer wrap design in our CharkBait red. black
and silver colors. They have
a metal top that won't crack from your sabiki
weight's contact when stowing. They
can be fished with spinning or conventional
reels (though conventional gear is really what
they are intended for). They even have a gimbal!
They use a ferrule design that makes putting 'em
together easy, and taking 'em apart less of a
chore. This is an imported item of very
Why own a Sabiki stick?
Good question and there is a very good answer.
Sabiki's can be a royal pain in the butt or
anywhere else you happen to get hooked. While
Sabiki's are not terribly expensive, it's a dumb
waste to use 'em once and toss 'em away because
they're tangled or a hazard aboard a boat with
their small hooks dangling in the way of
unsuspecting folks. With a Sabiki Rod you insert
your line through the rod, it has a larger
opening allowing you to reel the sabiki inside
the stick and even leave your weight attached to
the sabiki. They're a good thing to have aboard,
and they'll pay for themselves very quickly
since you won't have to break out a new sabiki
each time you catch bait.
Based upon some
feedback from some long rangers and folks in Florida looking
for a larger diameter and heavier test bait making stick,
we're introducing our Heavyweight bait maker. The new Sabiki
stick features a wider shaft to handle some of the larger
size sabiki rig hooks, can deal with # 1 and 2 size just fine.
It's also a much stouter pole, larger handle area, to deal
with the pressure of larger bait. If you are trying to make
a bunch of bigger size macks, this is the stick for you. The
lighter pole is more than adequate for most folks, but if
you are dealing with larger size Sabiki rigs and larger size
bait, the new CharkBait heavy duty Sabiki pole is exactly
what you need.
