In this fishing video I tested out the newest alligator gar fishing trend, which is using a tiny hook to catch big fish. You have to use thread to tie the bait onto the hook which is similar to using a hair rig for carp fishing. I'm not sure I'm sold on the method yet, but after landing a big alligator gar I'll have to do some more testing.

This was my first attempt using a small 2/0 hook to try and land a really big fish. It worked out and I’ll have to keep trying this method.

couple thing using the small hook method, i would keep the gap between bait and hook down to about 1/2 inch further then that will raise the chance of gill bleeding, i would also suggest a hard hookset if not multiple hooksets on heavy drag and then backing off the drag once the fish's weight can actually be felt, once they start headshaking closer to you, you want the drag pretty low or the hook will be more prone to ripping out on a hard headshake. thanks for trying new things nice catch

I like the idea of this method. It’s similar to hair rigs when I carp fish. I hadn’t been gar fishing in a while because of a back injury so I accidentally had the drag super loose when I went for the set because failed to check it first. Had to set a few times 😂

first time we fished the 1/0 hook i completely 100% thought it wouldn't work an hour later we had a 7'4 mouth hooked at the bank and landed 2 more 7 footers within the week on it.

Great video bro as always. I was doubtful on the small hook but one bite and a hookup can't argue with that. Look forward to watching you use that method a little more for trial reasons lol. I got the first like this time 😁. Wish ya speedy recovery 🙏. ✌️

I’ve seen a few other guys use it and figured I’d try it. It’s the same method I use for carp fishing, where the bait hangs below a small hook. My PB buffalo was 39lb and caught on a #8 hook.

Thanks for the support! That was my very first attempt and it worked. Certainly got to try it more. It’s the same kind concept I use carp fishy, where the bait is below the hook
