I have had several anglers ask about my simple gar rig, so here it is. The leader is usually 3 to 4 feet long. I vary the treble hook size depending on the size of gar I am after. The treble hooks typically tangle in the teeth, so you can release the fish unharmed. I put minnows on each hook or cut bait and sunfish using both hooks. I have found that gar can be float shy in areas of high fishing pressure, so I paint the floats a dark color on the bottom. Here is a 36 inch longnose gar (1 of 5) I caught this morning in the Brazos River.
