Caught 6 gar all together today on the motherland of alligator gar fishing, caught two over 5 foot from my Malibu Mini-X kayak and had a few chances at some bigger gar. been fishing allot actually but haven't been getting videos up and thats needs to change.

been in a small funk on the 7 foot gar lately, but have been putting in tons of time so I'm sure i will get back into them soon
this gar was around 75# and was pretty strong had my drag too tight and it was a little intense for a second. she was released healthy like all the gar i catch are to promote the future of the species.
had another 5 footer running when i released her and landed that one as well
this is the 4th gar over 5 foot i have landed from the kayak this week.

Saw the video in the Carp/rough fish section of the forum. Worth watching it again. Nice fish and good job on the release! thumb

Nice video/catch, do you just cut the hook on each one you catch? I've caught a few gar from my yak but none really on purpose. I would like to go out sometimes to target them but i have no idea what gear/bait i should use. I've also wondered how everyone unhooks them.
