Using a Gaff on Lake Trout

A very necessary item in the kit of the angler for lake trout is a good strong gaff: The smaller trout, from four to six pounds, may be safely landed in a large landing net, if the frame and handle of the net are strong and the net itself strongly woven and firmly attached to the frame, but for the larger fish a gaff is practically imperative. On one lake where the writer trolled for lakers the local talent used frog spears in place of gaffe—four-pronged affairs something like a small pitchfork. It was somewhat amusing and rather exciting to listen to the ensuing conversation in case a poorly hooked trout was knocked off the hook when the fisherman jabbed him with the "grains" and the weapon failed to hold. On no account use one of the murderous "patent" spring gaffs. If it is desired to mount the fish as a trophy the gaff should not be used. The best alternative in case neither net or gaff is at hand and if the fish is a large one, is to shoot it through the head with a twenty-two pistol or rifle.
