What state do AG live in?  Never seen one

They are all over the south.
If it doesn't scare you, it is not heavy enough.

Went last night with a buddy who has only been bass fishing 2 years. He caught a 5! His new PB and he is stoked! It was windy and had a lot of probs positioning the boat I got skunked. I had a gar at the boat but I shook it loose.

Long nose or alligator gar? Those alligator gar can be fun to hook, but once you get to the kayak it is like WTF do I do now. Haha. Most people are concerned with the teeth, but the scales are what will tear your ass up. Sharp as a knife and always thrashing.

Gator gar. they are all over here. I have seen some that weigh probably 40-50 lbs but down south Tx they can get to be 200 lbs. in the Trinity river which is the river I fish. They just grow em bigger down there. We also see a very occasional alligator here in the backwaters and creeks. Head south and east and they get thick.

I read indians used the scales of gator gar as arrowheads. Yeah they are sharp and DAMNED tough. If you clean one they are good eating but have some metal sheers to get through the scales.

LA is loaded with them. I never seen any that were 200 lbs, but 5 footers wouldn't even turn a head. Dime a dozen.

I have caught them on night crawlers, dead market shrimp and cut bait. They are hard to get a good hook set if you don't let them chew on it for a bit. Their bills are hard as steel, so until they get the bait down to the corner of the mouth the hook doesn't really dig in. Sometimes you can get lucky, as they tend to roll and wrap themselves up in the line when they feel tension.

I do not target them but I have watched vid. Guys use cut carp with a smallish treble hook. They let the gar swallow the bait then just reel and fight the fish. I cannot recall but they must use some sort of wire leader.

I see.  A steel lead.  Amost like catch Tuog.  Their teeth can snap a line.  I use a steel lead for them.

I never used steel leader, just 50 lbs braid. I don't think I ever had one break off.
