This is a great video and shows good sportsmanship for these often misunderstood fish. I live in WV and our small streams and rivers are packed full of these fish. Never used cut bait but I keep hearing about many people using it. I'll have to try it the next time out. Again, good video.

Nice vid, great fish! I would love to see you try for bass as I need more tips for bigger ones (bait, hook tricks, etc)

@dddd111159 Depends on the size of the hook and the bait, but usually I have to let them run a long time. They take the bait, chew on it, swim a little while, stop and chew on it, swim a little while, and repeat until they have swallowed it. If you set the hook too early, you might get lucky and hook it, but they usually spit it out. Treble hooks usually increase your chance of hooking one in the mouth. I once caught one with a rooster tail... that was fun.

Just about any creek, lake or river around here. In creeks like this, they prefer the deep calm pools. In slow rivers or lakes where it is usually deep and calm, they like certain "pockets" or areas not too far from shore and I'm not sure what makes them prefer their spots but I have seen them very concentrated in certain areas within casting distance from the shore on a big river and lake.

@adamitshelanu Yup, it's always best getting the whole deal on film from cast to fish... but doesn't always happen that way. This time of year they sit near the surface pretty often, so you can spot one, cast beyond it, and reel your bait right in front of its nose. Small piece of cut bait, medium sized hook or a small treble hook. They are tough to actually hook, but I seemed to get lucky this time. Watch the teeth, they are super sharp

What do you think is the best hook to use and what lb line to catch them?I caught one the other day but after several failed attempts,i think i could've had a better hook on.

Medium sized circle hooks and very strong braided line (or leaders) reduce visibility without compromising strength, and circle hooks lower mortality and injuries to the fish as well. That is at least what I have learned is most effective when fishing for gar.

So after they take the bait it looks like you let 'em run with it awhile before you set the hook. I see a lot of gar on canoe trips in TX, but never catch them. I'm using lures though. I'll try cut perch next time. Really good video.

Awesome! I just tried to catch some gar in a creek, but they bit my line off. I did catch some big smallies though. Could you check out the video? It's on my channel called Creek fishing with Leeches: smallmouth and rock bass.

This is the kind of fishing vid I like: you go from seeing the *actual* cut bait on the *actual* hook and see how long it *actually* take to get the prize. :^) (Even though you hid the strike behind a weed.) Well a guy who used to work down at Cliffs of the Neuse State Park at Seven Spring (Whitehall) said that it's a bank fishing gar hole fishing there. I guess I need to go down and find out.
