Here We Gar Again
I have personally been on a mission to knock down a trophy class Channel Catfish over the past month, with some limited success, there's no real way to specifically target one species when fishing with live bait. Thus resulting in a lot of exciting, toothy by-catches.
Recently, Grant and I have upgraded our personal bests for the Longnose Gar. My skinny 48 incher a few weeks back and a thick 43 inch fish for Grant this past Saturday.
(a 40 incher reminding me why most people don't land Gar in a kayak)
(This thick 44.75" fish put me one trophy Gar away from "Expert Angler" in the species)
Until next time, friends.
