Flounder gig is the fishing tool to gig a variety of fish not only limited to flounder, it can also be used to stick suckers, bowfin, snakeheads, frogs, carp, gar, sheepshead, drum, and other invasive or non-game fish species.
The flounder gig is usually designed in 3 prong or 5 prong. The sharp points and strong gigging barbs will can help to spear and hold onto fish very quickly.
Flounder Gig Material: Stainless Steel
For its use in the water, the flounder gig is usually made of stainless steel, which is a corrosion-resistant material. To achieve higher quality, 316 or 17-4 stainless steel is more prone to achieve better performance.
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.
Flounder Gig Manufacturing Process: Investment Casting
Investment casting, also known as lost wax casting, is a manufacturing method in which a wax pattern is created and then coated with a ceramic slurry to make a mold. The wax is then melted out of the ceramic mold and molten metal is poured into the cavity. The molten metal solidifies, and the ceramic shell is then broken or blasted off, generating a metal casting. The investment casting process does not require a minimum order quantity and can cast parts ranging from a few ounces to upwards of 200 lbs, so it can be a manufacturing solution to produce stainless steel flounder gig in different sizes.
The stainless steel flounder gigs can be designed with a great freedom because the investment casting process makes it possible to overcome the limits generally set by conventional manufacturing means.
Moreover, investment casting produces stainless steel flounder gigs to the highest degree of dimensional accuracy, therefore greatly reducing the need for post-casting finishing operations. This high degree of precision means that stainless steel flounder gig requires no machining.
