Due to production issues with our machine, the 5 prong flounder gig is out of stock for the near term. It will be 1-2 months before they will be available again.
We've designed the best flounder gig for sticking more fish and bringing in bigger hauls. Easily mount our fish gigs over our aluminum flounder gig pole and slide the stainless steel bolt into place to get started gigging. Our flounder gig was made for gigging a wide variety of fish beyond flounder; including suckers, bowfin, snakeheads, frogs, carp, gar, sheepshead, drum, and other invasive or non-game fish species.
ALL NEW FLOUNDER GIG FEATURES:
- 17-4 Stainless Steel for an even stronger, more corrosion resistant fish gig
- Now available in 3 prong or 5 prong
- Enhanced tip design for even faster penetration in fast-moving fish
- Reinforced barb design for keeping flopping fish on for even longer
The flounder gigs' sharp points and strong gigging barbs will quickly spear and hold onto fish of all sizes. We've seen a gigged flounder flop off a poorly made gig before, and we've even seen a flounder gig head break while poling the flats from a boat. These experiences laid the foundation for what was expected in designing the best gigs around for floundering and fish gigging.

What makes it the best flounder gig?
We've improved from 316 “Kitchen Grade and Corrosion Resistant” Stainless Steel to a stronger and even more durable 17-4 Stainless Steel for even more enhanced corrosion resistance. After long term use in harsh saltwater environments, our flounder gigs maintain their cosmetic and structural integrity.
Razor Sharp Points
The fish gig points are machine sharpened for fast penetration of fish swimming beneath the gigger. Whether gigging soft skinned fish such as flounder or thick-scaled gar, our razor sharp points will penetrate quickly.
Maximum Holding Power
Once the fish is gigged, it’s important for them to hold on tight to prevent our customers from losing their prized catch. On the contrary, it’s important to not overly design the barbs such that the fish fillet is damaged when taking fish off the gig. This is a critical aspect for our commercial customers. Taking this into account, we’ve designed a barb that holds fish on tight once they are gigged, but also allows the fish to come off easily once the user is ready to slide them in the ice box.
Designed by Engineers who are passionate flounder giggers, stress analysis tests were used to eliminate weak points where our competitors gigs commonly break or fracture. Not only will our high strength gigs take the abuse associated with gigging flounder on oyster reefs, they have been proven to push a 22 ft boat around in 20+ mph winds without breaking. The strength of our flounder gigs are incomparable to any of our competitors.
Our gigs will mount to any 3/4-inch pipe (nominal size). This is equivalent to a pipe, conduit or wood pole outer diameter of approximately 1 inch. Each gig comes with a 1/4-inch 316 stainless steel bolt and locknut for easily locking the gig to the pole of your choice.
Fish Spear Dimensions

*dimensions listed include the base of the flounder gig where the pole slides into and mounts to the gig head. This is the outermost dimensions of the gig head.
**dimensions listed do not include base where pole slides into and mounts. This is the "gigging area" and corresponds to where the prongs are.
Our customers use our flounder gig for a variety of fish and frogs. Those closer to saltwater commonly use the gigs for gigging flounder, gar, sheepshead, drum, and sting rays. Our customers on freshwater lakes, rivers and streams commonly use them for gigging suckers, carp, bullhead, bowfin, gar, frogs and other freshwater non-game fish. Our customers on rural properties with ranches and stocked ponds may use them to chase large bull frogs and even cleaning the pond of trash fish such as carp and gar that can infiltrate ponds after flooding events.
We have also collaborated with several government agencies who utilize our equipment as a part of their work.
