I also would like to know how to make 3 or 4 prong fish gigs because mine also take a beating here in SW Missouri. They get kinda high to keep buying them. I found a gig called the Ozarks Sucker Plucker thats supposed to be unbendable or unbreakable but I would still like to make my own.

Most diving gear-type stores have those and spears etc. The fleet supplys carry them here but they're the shorter kind with rope rings for ice fishing. I guess we can still get just the heads - add your own handle. We used to use manure forks with sawed & chiseled barbs for suckers in the creeks.
