Default Gator Hunting

Can one of you experienced alligator hunters tell me what size hook to use? I drew tags for a WMA and need to pick some up. Thanks.

Yeah I use the BIG off shore hooks, alot bigger than the palm of your hand. Heavy duty braided line for a leader, and connect that to a rope with a loop on the end for easy retying. When u catch, just cut the leader with hook still in gator, take a new leader and hook, and attach to the rope and bait it and your on your way.
