    Put a piece of pantyhose on your hook it will get tangled around the gars teeth and mouth when they hit your bait.

    use a large bobber about the size of a baseball. fish it with a slip rig where the bait can go down 3 to 5 feet in moderatly shallow water. use bluegills or bar fish. the bar fish seemed to work the best. at first you wont realize that there is a fish on. after catching several, you will notice when there is a fish on since they do not run or pull the bobber under. i caught hunderds of them when i was down there, and as far as im concerned you all can keep them down there....xcept for the gator gars. i woulnt mind them being in a res or two up here
