One of my goals for 2016
I want to hook into a alligator gar out of my kayak
The people I fish with do not think it can be done
So I guess it will be a solo fishing trip
Question what should I plan for equipment and rigging
Thanks for the info

There are a couple of guys on the forum that fish for them out of kayaks, I cannot remember them by name but you should be able to search posts and find some info.

I do fish for them. I do love to chase them. We use trebble hooks and single strand wire. Its a hot weather fish. We will be going back this summer for sure.

The largest ive seen in person were not on a river. We owned property on the Brazos for many yrs and Ive seen 6-7' gar there. But a bigger lake like RC has monsters Larger than 7'. Most have already scattered again. On lakes this makes them difficult to find. Contrary to popular belief ive found them all over our area. They r found more so in rivers such as the trinity & brazos however. When they gather in the Spring & Fall they can be targeted on lakes more easily. Christian has a good method for catching them IMO. Use a whole gizzard shad a good chunk of carp or a whole perch n Give them plenty of time to get the bait down or u will lose more than u catch. It takes patience, a strong & VERY Sharp hook, planning & other right tackle. The really big ones school up in the fall and arnt landed on conventional tackle.

Lusca knows how to land them and will tell u he's not always successful. You got to really want to catch a big one IMO.
