Phlynn and crew,
That looked like a very nice sized scissor lipped bastard, bummer. Cool video, after having missed plenty in the past, I found smaller hooked gaffs to be much more efficient on those long skinny critters.
Wish i could say that has never happened to us. These days i act a whole lot faster than that when an Ono hits a lure with mono. Gaff that thing as soon as it gets to the boat with mono...And hold on to the gaff! Great video though!
been there tuff loss foam works filled gaffs for my kayak test in pool firstThat's a big ass ono. Do you think filling the gaff with this foam sealant would keep it afloat?
