    Alligator Fishing Method with Hook and Line

    • Suspend hook and line above water, 1 to 2 feet.
    • Use about 30 feet of line, of 300 lb test or more.
    • Use a clothes pin to hold the line, for easy line removal by the alligator.
    • Coil the remainder of the line, at the base, to prevent tangling.
    • Dispatch the alligator immediately.

    Alligators are nocturnal and most catches will be made at night. Although it is not legal to take alligators at night, many hunters scout for gators at night to find where the big ones are.

    Baited hooks and lines are suspended above the water by some type of structure. In most cases hunters will use poles, branches, or trees to suspend baits as well as provide for a stationary object for securing the end of the line. The most commonly used baits are chicken quarters or beef melt.

    Approximately 30’ of line is tied off to the bottom of the structure while the baited hook end is suspended about 1-2’ above the water surface. Most hunters hang the bait higher at the beginning of the season to prevent smaller gators from taking the bait. As the season goes on the bait can be lowered to increase the probability of a catch. The baited end is suspended in such a manner to allow for easy line removal by an alligator.

    Clothes pins are most often used to hold lines to facilitate easy line removal. Excess line is rolled up near the base of the structure.Take care to coil the line so it will not tangle. Alligators (feeding primarily at night) will take the bait.

    Once alligator lines are set and baited, alligator hunters should inspect their hooks and lines and remove captured alligators daily. Alligators should be dispatched immediately upon checking lines. Shot placement should be centered directly behind the skull.

    In the event that an alligator is hooked and the hunter’s quota has been reached, the hunter should immediately release the alligator in the most humane method possible. Most alligators swallow the hook and the stomach acids will dissolve the hook. All hooks and lines should be removed when an alligator hunter’s quota is reached.

    Here at Nets & More we have the trotline hooks you want, and at the best price you can find. We carry a huge inventory of all the hooks in this catalog, so we can make immediate shipment to you. Due to their excellent quality, Mustad is the brand we sell the most. Established in 1832, Mustad is one of the oldest and the largest manufacturers of fish hooks in the world.

    No. 31010DT., No. 31014SS, and No. 34966STDT are straight "Limerick" hooks. They are formed from round wire, and if straightened they can usually be formed back to the proper shape.
    No.31014SS is a "Limerick" stainless steel hook. This is a good hook and is ideal for years of fishing where there are a lot of bottom logs, etc. If it is necessary to straighten this hook it can usually be formed back to its proper shape.
    No. 31010DT and No. 34966STDT have a special coating for rust resistance, but face it folks these are price leaders. If you are going out for a weekend fishing trip or if you loose them fast these hooks are okay. But if you fish long and hard you need to consider a better hook. (No. 34966ST-DT has a high shine and is very popular with Florida fishermen that do not bait.)

     No. 34081-DT and No. 34009-SS are straight "O'Shaughnessy" hooks. They are forged to the proper shape and are very strong. (These are the hooks with the flat sides.) Due to being forged these hooks are very hard to straighten, and if you do straighten one it is almost sure to break if you try to return it to its proper shape. We think the No. 34081-DT is one of the best buys you can find in trotline hooks. Most fishermen get a full fishing season out of this hook. If you fish a lot, but occasionally lose a line, this is the hook for you. No. 34009-SS is our top of the line stainless steel for the fisherman that demands the best. If you fish year after year and don’t lose too many lines this is the hook for you.

    A lot of fishermen that have never used a circle hook comment that they don’t see how a fish can get hooked on this hook. But after using them, a lot of people don’t want anything else. No. 39960ST-DT is a straight hook, No. 39965-DT is slightly kirbed. The 11/0 hooks have 1/2" gap which is required in some areas.
