Tips For Using Rope Lures
"You have to find the presentation that works best for you, and the water body you fish. Every Place is different. I like to bounce the lure. Be sure to dip the rope lure in the water before each cast. Doing so adds more weight, letting you cast farther.
The thing most people do wrong with rope Lures is they set the hook. There are no hooks to set in rope lures so you have to resist the urge to set the hook and just open the bail and hold the spool with your finger so the the gar does not just run away with the lure. Put pressure on the line with your finger on the spool and slowly lift up with the rod. You should feel/see the Gar try to back up and shake its head, Thats how they get there teeth hung in the rope. The Gar should now bolt away, click in the reel and begin fighting the Gar. Once the Gar is tired from the fight, put on a glove and grab the gars snout (Watch out for the teeth!!!). Or you can net the Gar.
the first one has no hooks at all
