Cliff Gaff

Hi Guys.

Looking at purchasing a cliff gaff for fishing the South Coast.

Have tried Big Fishing Conmen,Ranger and Rays Out there without any luck.

Anybody know any tackle shops that stock them??? More than happy to support a Fishwrecked Sponsor,over the big shops no end.

Any idea of the cost????

Ranges from about $50 for the plain ones to about $150 for big daddy.

 I would strongly recommend investing in a long pole gaff, cliff gaffs are an absolute hassle and often tangle in critical situations, however if your planning on fishing high spots (+5 meters) they are essential for landing big fish...


The spot you asked about in another post only requires a 3 meter pole gaff tops.

Totally second using a pole

Totally second using a pole gaff if you can get away with it. Offers a hell of alot more control and accuracy for the gaff man, also usually resulting in less of a chance of the line getting tangled around it. I use a 2 piece 6m when doing my south coast rock bashing.

But alas there will always be some cliffs beyond the reach of poles. Up at Kalbarri when fishing the cliffs i use a standard three hook inward gaff. Works geat if you are gaffing directly above.

When i fish sloping cliffs i use a cliff gaff that more resembles a three hook bear claw design where the hooks are fixed and hang under the line as you slide it down on the angle. Great on some of the sloping rocks down south.
