Fish Gigs Spear or Fishing Gig Hand Forged by Don Baker

DONALD BAKER FISH GIGS make PERFECT GIFTS for fishermen:

Give us a call at (314) 821-2121 for details.

We have a few UNSHARPENED fish gigs (that still need some grinding, sharpening or painting) for $99 each (includes shipping and handling). We also have a very few FINISHED fish gigs for $199 each (also includes shipping and handling).

WE'RE BASICALLY JUST RUNNING OUT OF INVENTORY! Generations of Bakers had been blacksmithing since the early 1800's, so it was no surprise that, my dad, Donald Baker (an avid sportsman) started forging and hand making FISH GIGS when he retired in 1982. IT TOOK HIM ABOUT SIX TO EIGHT HOURS TO MAKE A SINGLE FISH GIG! After just one night on the river we think you will agree...they’re worth every penny!

Fish gigging is an excellent way to harvest rough fish out of our streams and waterways. Our family mostly fish gigs in the winter when the water is clearer. We have fish gigged in many of Missouri’s lakes and rivers. We have mostly fish gigged in the Current River, Black River, Logan Creek, Meramec River, Big River, Clear Water Lake and Table Rock Lake type areas. My Dad loves making fish gigs, and in my opinion there is no better fish gig on planet earth. These DONALD BAKER FISH GIGS are cut out of old car springs, and then hand shaped to give them a unique grabbing and holding characteristic unsurpassed by any other fish gig. On impact this fish gig kind of springs open, just a little bit, and actually grabs a hold of the fish as it retracts back to its original position. Don’t forget they’re made out of OLD CAR SPRINGS! You’ll see!

My dad, Donald Baker (a 4th generation Blacksmith from Ellington, Missouri) has been forging and welding FISH GIGS most of his life. He first developed an interest in welding and blacksmithing in 1943 at the age of 16. America was at war with Germany and the GERMANS WERE SINKING OUR SHIPS FASTER THAN WE COULD BUILD THEM! Grandpa Baker had traveled out to Portland, Oregon to help build ships in the ship yard. After a couple of weeks, he sent for my dad. Young Donald rode the train from Ellington, Missouri, to Portland Oregon, when he was 15 years old and learned how to weld ships. The Navy was working on fine tuning a depth charge (sunken radio routine) to sink German subs. My dad says he remembers well an announcement one day in the ship yard... “WE’RE FINALLY MAKING SHIPS FASTER THAN THE GERMANS ARE SINKING THEM!”
