However, I've found my big net to be more effective than a gaff.  Once a fish is in that baby, it's mine.

I also like to sever the spine with my knife rather than beat the fish with a club, while still wrapped in the net, that method is foolproof.
The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
Of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee
Superior, they said, never gives up her dead
When the gales of November come early.

Just cut the gills.  I been out on the long range boats and it takes hours of the sharks to find us.  The decks all bloody and we are having a ball.

I would get in in my net and cut the gills in the net.  Game Over.
