I use the following gear for alligator gar fishing: Eagle Claw Hooks, Cortland Masterbraid Line, Sufstrand by American Fishing Wire, Penn Fishing Reels either 309’s or 8500 Live Liners, and BPS catmax series rods. I am not sponsored by any of these products. All of them have served me well for alligator gar fishing over the years and I recommend them to anyone for a variety of applications. Over the last 7 years I have never seen a fish lost due to a hook failure, reel failure, wire failure, or rod failure. These products have stood up for me, and stood up to the beating they take from the fish.
