I finally made it out to the LMR at dusk to fish and hooked into a small Stripper and one Alligator Gar in the matter of an hour. I was not sure but I seem to remember that some people said those Gar's should be killed when caught due to the havoc they wreak on the fish population. I dont like killing any fish so I threw it back. Quick question, when fishing for smallies what size hook do you recommend when fishing plastics (worms, tubes, etc.)? I typically use a 2.0 for large mouth but figure thats too big for small mouths.
