wat bait do you all use for gar?
Welcome to the BOC Ray. Honestly i never fished for gar, try to avoid catchin em actually. I catch some on jugs and lines but i don't target them. Any kind of live bait should do the trick however.
A bow with a reel on it.:big_smile:
5 or 6 inches of nylon rope frayed, and hooked onto a bass spinner bait. The other way I like to catch them is to snag them.
They love shrimp.:wink:
welcome to boc:wink:
done real good on cut shad, but i cant say that was what i was fishing for....also in tailwater areas, i catch a bunch on blue fox inline spinners
i like to gar fish when the catfish are not hitting. i use a nylon rope tied to fishing line and just throw it out to were i see a gar. When the gar come up they bite in to it and there teeth get stuck in the rope and then its your job to reel them in.
Depends on what kind of gar one is fishing for. Alligator gar take fairly large baits. I prefer about a one or two pound hunk of fish, preferably the head. Buffalo, drum, and bluegill make pretty good baits. Longnose and shortnose will take anything a catfish will, as well as lures. Don't particularly care for the rope lures as they tangle in the teeth and make release more difficult.
I catch them on cut shad quite often.
