Thanks for the pictures Crash.Very nice.Did you make the gaff?

Yessir.

Hickory axe handle, 24 of 10/24 stainless stock, doweling jig for a 12 hole, secured with expanding gorilla glue, and sharpened to a point with a grinding wheel. Finished with a paracord wrap and an occasional coat of marine spar urethane.

I like that design... is the tip just a piece of drilled stainless?

I just bought one commercially available.  I got it at englund marine but it's pretty much the same as this:

Super tempted to use this in the SFbay for Hailbut, and all other species that are not on the "do not use on" list.  Have we determined that this is legal or illegal or up to the seasoned or rookie warden? :smt006

They were used for years without incident.  Then Carrie Wilson wrote a column that said they were not legal, but her explanation was poor.  That was in 2013.  I don't believe that they are illegal, but given that column I would expect to get a ticket and have to fight it.  I also could be wrong.  I'm not willing to say go ahead and use one given the department's column saying its illegal and not having walked it back yet.  But I carry one and use it, only in Humboldt though in case I do have to fight a ticket I don't want to travel for it.

So use at your own risk.
