I decided to make a comprehensive guide to catch and release alligator gar fishing.
I start by showed the 3 methods i use to target these fish.
I start the day with my standard 4/0 j hook and catch a very nice 5 foot alligator gar on it.
From there i move on to my tiny 1/0 j hook and lose a river monster on it after several minutes of intense fight where it towed my kayak all over. I put the same hook and bait out and catch a 130 pound giant.
I ran out of time to film the third part of my video the hook less part where im using whats called a gar lasso to snare the gars snout instead of using hooks to catch them.
I totally understand if some of the info is hard to follow i tried my very best to film by my self and to explain everything the best i could. If you have any questions please please please ask away in the comment section.
Thank you for watching look for a part two in the future.
The 4/0 J hooks model number is SL11-3h-3x strong
The 1/0 J hook is a Gamgatsu live bait 1/0 j hook.
