Gar TR

Post by Vito » Wed Aug 01, 2012 9:57 am

[report]Nothing fancy about this. I got a tip from a gear head I know about a spot loaded with gar. My brother and I made plans to check it out. We pulled into the launch and quickly noticed many dead gar and carp in the weeds. I hate bowfishing, but it did confirm that we were most likely in the right area. A short 25 minute boat ride upstream and we settle into an area that we believed was the correct location. We soon saw a few gar porpoising downstream, so we got into position.

Yeah, this is the right spot.

There were doubles.

Close to nonstop action the hour we fished.

And more doubles.

Not a bad way to kill a summer evening. I think we'll be back.

Not at all. Could it be the water they live in? The gar here have almost no smell.

Cool fish to catch because of how aggressive they are, and how they look. I haven't fished for them since I was kid. Forget how fun they can be. Unique fish for sure.
