Best Bait for Longnose Gar

Published

on

You’ve heard of bass, trout, salmon, walleye, and even bluegill, but there are many other incredibly unique species of fish that you could angle out for. One of the best examples of this would have to be the Longnose Gar. This fish species has largely remained unchanged for the last fifty million years, so you can rest assured that long before you were trying to catch this elusive specimen, there were duck-billed dinosaurs roaming these same banks during the Cretaceous period that were every bit as dumbfounded as you are! Of course, once you’ve (accidentally) caught this captivatingly strange fish, you want to do so again. The problem is that this fish seems to defy all of the rules. But where there’s a will, there’s a way. If you want to have your taken with one of these elusive creatures. you have to understand their habits, their anatomy, and the focus of this article, which will be the best bait you need in order to catch them. Let’s take a look at their anatomy first: 

Definitely recommend when fishing for gar, use a hook and live bait. Gar will be easiest to catch this way. So what bait to use? Try minnows, goldfish (if legal in your area) or perch. These will give you the best chance at getting a gar.

Gar literally have the longest nose on a fish you’ve ever seen in your life, hence the name “longnose.” First of all, the longnose gar has a mouth that is very long, narrow, and bony, and my apologies for being a bit tongue-in-cheek here, but the design literally almost resembles a Simpsons character. However, once you get past your laughing and snickering, you start to realize that there is going to be some very unique challenges to catching this fish because of their anatomy. First of all, the longnose doesn’t do well with fish hooks. They literally have to go very deep into this fish’s mouth; otherwise the hook will either break off your line completely or the fish will get away. 

You also have to take other considerations into account because of this fish’s bony mouth. Namely, their behavior regarding bait is going to be much different as well. One of the things that most fish will do is to immediately strike at the bait that you cast out. However, this is the first area in which you will have to adapt in regards to the longnose gar. For starters, they will treat their bait differently than other fish. Instead of striking at it quickly and suddenly, the longnose gar will bite it and then chew it for an extended period of time. In all honesty, they will usually carry on with this behavior for a surprisingly long period as well. Of course, if you are looking to land some longnose gar, there are other things you should be aware of before we even get into the bait. Consider the following: 

Naturally, hopefully we have established just how unique the longnose gar is among the long list of fish that you can catch. However, you should be aware of something else regarding the longnose gar: simply put, you need to make your cast count. Consider the following elements: 

Patience is the key. 

If you are fishing for breeds such as longnose gar will require you to act according to their terms. They will generally follow most baits you throw at them, but they will take their own sweet time in attacking it. You will need to slow reel in your lure just past their line of vision and let them follow it for several yards. 

Fish for them by sight. 

One of the best (read: only) ways to fish for longnose gar would be to fish for them by sight. Thus, when you spot that characteristic long nose on this gar, you should cast your line out just past the dorsal fin of the gar. Moreover, you should use polarized sunglasses when you are out on the water, simply because they will reduce glare and make most images sharper and clearer. Make sure you are constantly scanning your eyes both on the outside of the boat and on the sides of the boat too. 

Be as accurate as possible with all of your casts. 

If you specifically target longnose gar, you have to be as accurate as possible. They will usually strike your bait or lure if it is cast out just past the lure of the fish and adjacent to their body. Make sure your bait or lure is at the optimum amount of six to eight inches past the side of the fish. 

Also, when you throw out your cast, you need to make sure you remember that the longnose gar is a reactive striker. They will usually float quietly while their prey swim by, then they will aim their jaws sideways so they get an easy meal. 

Best bait for the gar. 

Now, it’s time for us to get on to the bait. There are several examples of bait that will appeal to longnose gar, and this is definitely a time to get as technical as possible. Consider some of these pointers when selecting the best bait for your next longnose gar trophy picture: 

Take a good look at your lures. 

There are several specialized lures that you can use in order to land the perfect longnose gar. First of all, one of the best lures would be the crankbait. These types of lures are normally used for bass, but they can do double-duty quite well for longnose gar. The lures are usually three to four inches in length and ideally they should run just below the surface of the water for maximum effectiveness. Choosing a bright color on one of these lures is an excellent decision; like all other fish longnose gar are absolutely attracted to brightly-colored items. 

Of course, along these same lines, there are definitely some flipping sticks that you should be aware of as well. Your best option would be to use a 7.5 foot flipping stick if you want to appropriately tackle the gar you come across. This large option for a flipping stick will absolutely be powerful enough to take on these gar, who are well-known not only for their unique anatomy, but also for fighting the lures tooth and nail. Your braid line should be in either the 50-pound or 60-pound bracket; you often can even use these without a leader if you so desire. 

Other lures you can look at would be the ones that are specially catered just for the longnose gar’s habits and personality. These lures are usually characterized by hookless apparel that will simply get stuck in the teeth of the longnose gar. These lures are usually called “rope flies”, and they most often are homemade; many readily available materials can be pressed into use. 

One good example of a solid rope fly for a longnose gar would be a design where the rope strands are attached to a hook or jig and then you simply have the hook cut off at the bend as well. You also should attach a rubber-core sinker or a split-shot, making the fly weighted. This gives it the ability to cast much more easily. Another reason why many swear by weighting down the fly is because it will give your rod a more solid up-and-down action, making it much easier to catch fish within the water. 

Another rope fly you could use would be one that consists of a quarter-inch nylon rope, cut with a center core and having the individual strands unbraided. The nylon strands will usually extend out about twice the length of the fly, and you can put this whole creation through a ring with a threader from one of those sewing machine bobbins. Another advantage to using nylon for your homemade fly is that it will allow you to get creative. You can easily add the color from a permanent marker if you are looking for a fancier shade and for a better way to attract these picky gar. 

Finally, yet another popular rope fly can be constructed by cutting a 3 to 6-inch piece of nylon rope (preferably 3/8′ in size) and thread it into a hook shank, wrapping it into a jighead, hook, or a spinner bait that you would use in place of a worm. You should fuse this rope together with a flame, making a hook shank. Finally, you should make sure the melted rope is completely covered over by a braided line or thread. You can use epoxy to make the line as durable as possible, allowing for multiple casts into the water. Place the nylon strands at the top of the head of your homemade bait, then you will be off to the races. This bait will be just what the fishing pro ordered, as it will get tangled in the teeth of the gar, impeding its snout and allowing you to reel it in. 

Hooks 

Although it is difficult, you can also use hooks for bait when you are fishing for gar. However, because of the gar’s long bony mouth and their lack of flesh, this could prove to be difficult. However, there are ways that you can do it. First of all, you could hook up a baitfish with either a #6 or #2 treble hook set or floating rig. Usually, what will happen is that the gar will grab up this bait sideways and they will take it and try to swim on their merry way. Yet again, this is a situation where patience is the key. You need to wait until the gar tries to follow the bait, then you should proceed to firmly set your hook. You will usually have the best luck with a quick-strike lure or rig consisting of a multiple treble hook. If you are going to throw the fish back, you want to make sure they don’t incur an injury because of your hook. However, this is an easy thing to happen when you are fishing for gar, so many gar anglers avoid hooks entirely. 

Wire Snares 

Believe it or not, you also can employ wire snares such as the ones used to catch rabbits for your gar fishing activities. You would start by getting part of a two-foot stainless steel wire and wrapping the end around a barrel swivel. You would utilize the free portion of the wire and put it through a lively baitfish, preferably just above the dorsal fin. Then you should swing the free portion of this wire back toward the swivel portion. Make a loose loop that will slide easily through the leading part. After tying your main line directly toward the swivel, you are now ready to cast your rig into the shallow portion of the water. A gar will usually grab the bait quickly, as this will be accompanied by a firm pull and then the snare will tighten around their beak. 

Jugs 

Finally, you can use jugs as a good bait source in order to catch gar as well. If you have ever been in the deep south and came across a piece of PVC pipe or a sturdy branch attached to a large soda bottle, then you have just come across an amateur fisherman’s fishing tools. They will usually have a 2-foot wire attached to the other part of the branch. On the other end, there will be a large hook that is baited with cutbait or livebait. You will often see several fleets of these jugs on a large river on a given night in many parts of the country. After these items are drifted across shallow flats, they will usually attract some of these gar who will proceed to swallow the bait. Immediately after this the angler will grab the pipe or limb and then reel in the fish. 

Conclusion 

With a little bit of knowledge, persistence, and trial-and-error, you will definitely find the right bait option for all of your angling needs. There is no question that the longnose gar is a challenging specimen to try to catch, from their long, boney nose to their unusual intelligence. But what these immense amounts of bait options, you will surely find the right option for you.

Fishing Willow Beach – Catch Fish Near Las Vegas

Can You Fish at Willow Beach?

Willow Beach is a long-time classic fishing destination. It’s a part of Lake Mohave on the Colorado River. The black rock canyons are just below Hoover dam and are part of Lake Mead National Park. Its Cold waters are on the north of Lake Mohave.

I’m going to share stuff here that you won’t find anywhere else.

Back in the day, they used to catch huge
rainbow trout out of that little beach. I remember when I was a kid they had a café in by where the
store is. Other Species we caught were Carp, Catfish, and Bass.

Inside the café, we used to go there to eat breakfast in the mornings before we went
fishing or we would go fishing early and come to the café after a couple of hours of fishing.
Inside the café.

The walls were lined with hundreds of pictures of anglers with their catch. These
were all rainbow trout at the time and you had to have a trout over 5 pounds to get on the wall.

There were also taxidermy trout on the walls along with other wildlife that you can find in the
area. If I remember right there was a bighorn ram mount at the front entrance.

Later on, as I grew up in the 80s and 90s the decor changed a little bit. The trout pictures were still on the wall
but the trophy at the front of the store was in a case and it changed to a striped bass.

Around this time striped bass got out of Lake Mead into the river system. They had a heyday eating up
trout.

Because of that, they grew to enormous sizes. I can’t remember exactly but I seem to
recall a striped bass in the display case that was over 60 pounds if I remember right.

This place is the iconic big fish travel destination. There have been people coming here for decades to
catch big fish whether they be trout or striped bass.

I took a 100 person survey on facebook if people like bass fishing best or trout fishing best. Here’s the results.

Can You Swim at willow beach?

There is no swimming allowed at the marina but if you go outside the buoys you can swim. You should be warned that the water is ice cold year around though.


Do I need an Arizona fishing license to fish at Willow Beach?

There is a lot of confusion unless you already know about whether you need a license to fish at
Willow Beach or not.

First of all yes you do need a license to fish at Willow Beach. However, if
you have a Nevada license that will work as well.

It doesn’t matter if you are on a boat or on
the shore as long as you have a Nevada or an Arizona license you are good to go.

Do I need a stamp for Arizona or Nevada at Willow Beach?

The answer is
no. Some time ago they did away with the stamps. Now when you buy the license it is included
with the license if you get it in Nevada or Arizona does not matter.

Do I need a trout stamp at Willow Beach?

Again the answer is no. Back in the day you
used to have to buy a trout stamp but nowadays that is included with the license as well no
matter which state you come from Arizona or Nevada.

Do I need a stamp for a second pole at Willow Beach?

Once again the answer to that is no. It is
included with the license and you can have up to two poles but a maximum number of three hooks
between the two poles.

So I usually fish one pole with one hook in the other pole with two
hooks.
At the end of this article, I will give you a willow beach fishing Report for 2021


Can I catch striped bass at Willow Beach?

The answer is absolutely yes you can.

What are the
recommendations for catching striped bass?

Well you can do it similar to the way you do it in
Lake Mead- bait fishing with anchovies that are frozen.

Cut them in thirds and put them
on a standard worm hook. Use about 1 ounce of weight and toss them out there about as far as
you can get them.

If you are on a boat you can do the same thing or you can go upstream a ways and float down slowly with an anchovy on the hook slightly above the bottom.

Another
recommended way to catch striped bass is using baits that mimic baitfish. Either a lure that
mimics a shad or one that mimics a trout or even bluegill.

These are terrific to use because
the bass and the striped bass love to eat these smaller fish, especially trout.

In case you did not know trout are stocked at Willow Beach every Friday. When this happens it’s like buffet time for
the striped bass. This would be a good time to throw out a swim bait that looks like a trout.

last but not least you can use live bait which you can get from my buddy mike wigglerarmy.com

Can I catch trout at Willow Beach?

Again the answer to this is an astounding yes.

How do you catch trout at Willow Beach? I would suggest the old standby Berkeley power bait and fish
somewhere around the picnic area by the store or the fishing pier over by the hatchery.

Probably the best place to catch trout. Anywhere in between that is able to be official legally is
good as well. If you have a boat or kayak you can go up or downstream and fish The coves. The
trout like to hang out in there as well and you can catch some real big trout at Willow Beach.

Both of my sons have caught 5-pound trout there. In case you were wondering yes this was
recently it was 2020.

My son Lorin at Willow Beach – This Rainbow Trout was caught on a Berkley Mousetail

I know the best do you eat the trout but the hatchery also put out some
very large ones for the anglers to catch. You can also use lures like spinners for trout and even
jerk baits that are semi-small.

Another popular soft bait or mouse tails made by Berkley. Also,
regular old nightcrawlers are a great option. You can get them from my friend mike
wigglerarmy.com

Marshmallows are a good bait for trout as well. Some people use the garlic-flavored ones made
specifically for fishing but the little colorful marshmallows that you put in your hot cocoa do a
nice job too. (the garlic flavored ones give me bad breath)

Lastly, a super very good option is wax worms or mealworms that you can get at
the store at Willow Beach. Keep in mind Arizona time is different than Nevada time most of the
year and the store closes fairly early.

What are some Willow Beach fishing tips?

The first tip I would give you is to try to fish in the off
hours to beat the crowds.

A lot of people go down to Willow Beach If you try to go during a holiday weekend you are
going to fight for elbow room. I would say if you go in the morning during the week that would be
a terrific time.

It doesn’t matter if you are going just to kayak or if you are fishing, the middle of
the week is a good time.

Late in the evening is also a good time. Only the most diehard
fisherman are out there after about 10 PM so getting a spot is not so hard except maybe on the
weekends. They do have a very nice fishing pier at Willow Beach and it’s quite large but in the
late summer, there’s a lot of grass around the pier so it’s kind of difficult to fish.

If you are going to fish the pier in the late summer you are going to want some sort of gear that you can cast out
very far. This will get you out past the grass and give you a better chance of getting a striper.

Mouse tails and wax worms seem to do the best on trout if you can see them. Plop one of these
baits in front of them and you can usually get their attention with it especially the wax worms
and regular worms.

The best piece of advice I can give you if you want to catch trout is to go
there on Friday morning. Prepare for heavy traffic along the shore because a lot of people know
that the department of wildlife stocks Willow Beach at the ramp on Friday mornings at about eight.

Watch out for the no fishing signs. You need to stay in the designated fishing areas which are a
little ways away from the docs. If you are fishing for striped bass this is a good time too.
Because the stripers come in to eat the trout. Putting something out there that looks like a trout
is a good bet during this time.

Willow Beach trout stocking schedule 2021

All I can tell you is that they stock Willow Beach at about 8:00 AM every Friday morning. There
are occasions when that schedule is changed for example during Covid lockdowns they did not
stock for quite a long time.

There may be other reasons why they don’t stock for example if it is
a holiday. Other than that they are pretty regular about it.

The Top 5 Bass Fishing Guides for Lake Kissimmee

This is not just a job for Captain Tim; this is his life and his passion. He is the best bass Fishing Guide for Lake Kissimmee. He lives to fish, and he enjoys taking vacationers out and sharing his expertise. The crew at Florida Bass Charter are United States Coast Guard certified. They follow all safety measures, and they are ready and willing to teach you all the techniques you need to know to catch largemouth bass in Florida. Give him a call and book your trip now. 

Florida Bass Charter Gettin-er Done

If you are looking to catch trophy bass, you need to visit Kissimmee, Florida. Kissimmee Lake is the third-largest in Florida, offering 35,000+ acres of fantastic angling and stunning scenery. Lake Kissimmee is the largest with the Kissimmee chain of lakes, located 15 miles away from Lake Wales and approximately 40 miles from Orlando, Florida. Forget the amusement parks, museums, and other attractions and book a fishing guide for a day. Go out and have an adventure. Explore the beautiful Florida waters, learn how to fish for the first time, or try to catch a huge trophy bass. 

Lake Kissimmee has slightly warmer water temperatures than some other lakes in this area. Because of this, you can see many largemouth basses. There are many anglers in this area that will fish Kissimmee during summer. With a combination of heat and warmer water temperature, you will find an abundance of largemouth bass. If you can schedule your vacation/fishing trip during the complete moon phase, you can catch bass closer to the shore.  

Fishing on Lake Kissimmee

If you are an experienced angler, a pro, or use a guide, make sure you take advantage of the thick vegetation. All the guides will know this and know where the hot spots are going to be. Kissimmee doesn’t become as crowded as some of the more transparent lakes in Florida because of the heavier vegetation. An ideal hiding place for the Bass in this area; eelgrass, bulrush, and knotgrass. These vegetation types help protect bass, allowing them to grow to Lake Kissimmee’s large sizes. 

One of many highlights for fishing on Lake Kissimmee is catching Bass between 5-8 pounds. Now and then, some anglers can wrangle in a 10+ pound largemouth bass. While out on Lake Kissimmee, keep your eye out for large sections of reed or eelgrass. This is where you can find larger schools hiding out. 

Tips for Fishing on Lake Kissimmee

Fishing on the upper area of the chain of Kissimmee lakes can be a little more challenging. This area is more acidic and has tannin-stained waters. The lower Kissimmee chain has more shallow water and is sensitive to changing weather fronts during colder months. A lot of anglers choose to wade fish. Many boat ramps and fishing camps will grant access to wade fishing. In the Florida lakes, watch out for hydrilla. Hydrilla can make navigating these waters complex, so it is recommended to use a fishing guide if you have never been on Florida’s water.

When fishing on Lake Kissimmee during spring and winter, for best results, use flipping plastic baits or a slow-trolling golden shiner. If you search for largemouth bass during the fall or summer months, your go-to lures will be plastic worms, rattling crankbaits, and jerk baits. You will want to have a good arsenal of lures and other equipment no matter what time of year you go out fishing for largemouth bass. 

Popular lures for Lake Kissimmee 

The type of lure you use will depend on the area you are planning to fish and the kind of fish you plan to catch. I am providing a shortlist below some of the most popular lures for catching Largemouth Bass in Florida, specifically Lake Kissimmee and the surrounding area. 

JerkBait

This type of bait is perfect when fishing around hydrilla or eelgrass that are abundant in Florida lakes. Using your rod tip, you need to perform a complex jerking motion to get through the thick vegetation. Using jerk baits, you want to mimic shad and shiner colors, as this is the type of prey that bass is attracted to. 

jerk bait

Speed Worm

Speed worms are the most popular and most versatile lure that you can use to catch Bass in Florida. You can use the speed worm; use it along with a heavyweight in cover, choose to worm it on the bottom of the lake, swim it back to you, or use it as a top-water lure. 

Swim Bait

This type of bit works exceptionally well around grass and lily pads on Lake Kissimmee. It is effortless to use; rig it up on a lightly weighted swimbait hook, throw it out, & reel it in slow and steady. The fish will go crazy! Make sure you are in or around some vegetation. 

Spinnerbait

With spinnerbait, you can catch trophy-sized bass. All you need to do is find an abundance of baitfish swimming around and toss in a white spinnerbait. Spinnerbait may not catch you the most fish, but it could snag you the biggest Bass of The trip if used correctly on Lake Kissimmee.

Rattletrap

This style of bait is best in the same areas and situations as your jerk bait. The thickness of vegetation will determine how you use a rattletrap; if hydrilla is thick, then you want to throw your rattletrap out and steadily reel it back in. If you are in sparse vegetation, you can do the Yo-Yo technique; bounce your line up and down. 

Lakes in The Kissimmee Chain

The lakes within the Kissimmee chain of lakes range in size from about 200 acres to 44,000 acres. The smaller lakes will, of course, have more limited fishing opportunities. I have included three of the most popular Bass Fishing lakes in the Kissimmee chain below. 

Lake Tohopekaliga

Twenty-two thousand seven hundred acres make up the most famous lake in Florida and the entire country. It is well known for producing more trophy Bass consistently than any other lake. According to Florida Wildlife Commissions’ biologist, for every 10-acres of land, there is one Bass over 10-pounds. Bassmaster Magazine has named Lake Toho “the most consistent lake for both numbers and trophy-sized bass.”

Lake Hatchineha

A top-class bass area, Lake Hatchineha offers gorgeous scenery. This lake is smaller and less known than other lakes in the Kissimmee chain. At only approximately seven thousand acres, Lake Hatchineha is a favorite spot for local anglers. The average depth is only 3-feet, and the deepest area comes in at 8-feet, making it one of the shallowest. Fishing on Lake Hatchineha is best done during the early mornings, evenings, late at night during summer, or in winter months.

Cypress Lake

At Cypress, you cannot only catch your share of largemouth bass, but you also see a variety of wildlife. Alligators, Osprey, and Eagles, among many others. All are living in their natural habitat. Cypress Lake has a record of 18-pound largemouth bass. This part of lake Kissimmee is best fished during the fall months but produces largemouth bass all year round. The locals prefer to slow-troll small jigs, which helps them locate the schools of baitfish.
