When the sun is high and the fish are up, cruise likely-looking areas slowly and methodically, scanning out and to the side of the boat. Once a fish is spotted the fun then begins. http://1source.basspro.com/index.php/component/k2/232-general-fishing-boating-topics/2415-the-lowdown-on-long-nose-gar
One way to catch longnose gar, set out cut baits with floats. Sharp hooks are completely necessary to successfully hook and catch these fish, otherwise the bone of their jaw will not allow for a hook set and they will inevitably spit the hook out.
Also, when fishing with a rod and reel use live bait, a four- to six-inch shiny minnow with either a treble hook or circular hook.
Rainy days or over cast go with a poppin frog
I use it in areas where there is a lot of grass and weeds and keep it close to the surface and it works great.
On a partly cloudy day : gold/black back is good.
Later in the year, when it's hot and sunny most everyday, the other colors come into play and you can experiment, but always tie on the above 4 first, given the situation.
Maybe yours snuck out of the factory without getting one installed on it.
If you like having the "O" ring on your crank baits, you can always purchase a small package of "O" rings and put one on it yourself.
Sometimes I take the "O" ring off of the crank bait because it can wear your line down and break off if the line gets stuck in the spot where it splits.
When I do take the "O" ring off, I usually tie my line directly on the crank bait using a Uni-Knot with a small loop in it. This way you have a good line connection and can still get plenty of action out of your crank bait.
Just to check, I tied a loop knot last night and it didn't make any obvious difference. Likewise, I tried a few casts with an O-ring attached, and it gave this particular lipless bait much less action. My recommendation, for what it's worth, is to fish the lure as-is, and tie directly to the lure.
However if I am near weeds I like to use a sensitive rod and tick it just off the tops of the weeds. It is a simple to use lure that produces.
In Springtime, I use this on rivers and fish it from downstream to upstream ensuring a slow, even retrieve, pausing in slacks created by rocks, trees, etc. This will lure the smallmouths out everytime.
which one would you recommend me to get?
But I've found that yhou can catch nice Bass on the Cottton Cordell and if you loose one it doesn't dent your pocket book so bad.
They catch fish and that is what it's all about.
Forget fancy and/or pricey. Does it catch fish? Yes!
