    has anyone used a nylon rope to fish for gar, and would you have to soak the rope in something to make it more attractive?

    most people dont use just nylon rope...they put it on there along with their bait....it dont attract the gar it makes their teeth get caught in it so they cant bite through your line as easily

    I haven't used it yet, but I have the material.

    Take about 6" of nylon rope. Melt one end. Unwravel all but about 1" of the other end. Use a tiny bit of the unwraveled part to secure the rest and keep it from unwraveling further.

    Looks like a giant jig. Use it with no hook, the teeth get caught in it.

    Frankly, I'm getting ready to attach a few inches to my catfishing rigs. I can't seem to catch anything but gar anyway.

    I use a 3-5 inch piece of 1/4 to 1/2 inch frayed nylon rope (neon colors). I glue them to jig heads. I try to spot the gar and cast out past them...reeling the jig right by them. They are aggressive and most of the time, their teeth get caught up in the rope and not the hook.
