    Only luck I had with catching gar is on cut bait or whole dead perch. Tried lures and they would just trail them close to the boat and turn away. Got into bowfishing last year and they put up a good fight when you stick them with an arrow. The part of the state I live in alligator gar is rare. Have a bunch of longnose, needlenose and spotted gar.
