Our suggestion, for Mahi, Kingfish, Blackfin Tuna and most South Florida fish you should go with the 2” Hook. My personal favorite! It is a fish magnet and you simply cannot miss with the smaller hook. It is all you need.
For bigger Yellowfin and large Bahamian Wahoo try the larger 3” hook. Once you try the Carbon Fiber shafts you will never use a fiberglass shaft again!!
These new Carbon Fiber shafts will drastically lighten up your gaff and make gaffing fish so much easier! It is simply unreal how much lighter and easier it is to handle especially when you have a longer 8’ Gaff in your hands and a 30# Bull Dolphin shaking like an angry beast on the other end. We make these with the 2” or 3” Winthrop gaff hooks and they are extremely durable and made to last forever!
