Most let them chew the bait before they strike. Any opinions on which method is better? I'm going to try and get a few of these beauties as well pretty soon.

most use trebbles and let them chew so that they can swallow the bait and trebble therfore hooking them in the throat. After landing they cut the leader and leaving the hook and piece of cut leader in the gars throat. I watched a gar surface and thrash for 2 hours trying to dislodge the trebble and piece of leader i had left in it. I made my decision right then never to use trebbles again. So i started experimenting with different hooks and the gama works best for me.

At it again. My nephew graduated from the 6th grade to the 7th so as a reward for doing well in school we took him on an overnight fishing trip for crappie and gar.this was to be his first time fishing for either species. We started off dropping jigs into logjams. Davian was the first to hookup. His first ever crappie was 13 .5 inches and was the biggest of the trip
As it got dark we tied off and turned on the lights. As i rigged up the gar rods they began jigging for crappie. Before i casted the last talapia baited rod another crappie was in the boat. Davian was up first with a 5ft gar
He did a great job fighting that gar made it easy for me to lasso. Next was yesenia
With a nice gar and a photo bomber moth lol then it was my turn
We ended up with 18 crappie kept and 3 gar released to fight another day

like your rig and not letting the fish swallow the hook is a good plan i wonder if garzila does the same i saw where he had a big box of treble hooks i bet he lets em swallow it and kills tons of fish i no they say it don't hurt em to swallow the hook but i disagree i bet a lot die from infection
