Nice Gar leaders! I'm new to making gar leaders, so can I ask what style and size hook and lb.test wire you are using? I will be mainly targeting spotted gar with an occasional alligator gar mixed in. Thanks

The hooks are 12/0 gamakatsu big river bait hooks, leader material is malin 131lb hard wire and barrel swivels are 3/0 eagleclaws. With That being said no steel leader is needed to catch spotted gar.

I DO NOT LET ALLIGATOR GAR SWALLOW THE BAIT BEFORE SETTING THE HOOK

Oh okay then, I thought since the spotted gar have teeth that a wire leader was needed as well. Wow thats big size hook u r using.

Heavy mono as a leader works for spotted gar
