Lure Fishing

What do I use to catch an alligator gar?

Bait?
Lure?
Fishing Line?
Float or not Float?
Every time we go fishing i always see them swimming by but i can never seem to catch one, any tips/guide?

Josue-

Since using a net wasnt in your question, I'll try to stick to what you are asking:
Large open-faced or spinning reel capable of hold 150-200 yards of 30-100 pound test monofilament line. but it is possable too do it with a small reel with light line , such as 10-17 lb test.
6ft-8foot stiff-actioned graphite or composite rod.
3 foot steel leader, 60-100 pound test
2/0 treble hook
1/4 oz. slip sinker, with split shot sinker to keep it above the hook.
Plastic or cork bobber (float), capable of keeping your bait and rig suspended near the water's surface.
Gaff, or where legal, a 22 caliber rifle, for subduing the toothy fish when landing it
