Another good day on the Trinity river near Crockett Tx. Almost a half dozen gar caught and one just a hair under 6 foot. I only do catch and release and all my gar are released unharmed after a few pictures, i support a sustainable fishery for future generations.
the gear used was
A Fin Nor Offshore 6500 spooled with 100 pound Suffix performance braid on a 6 foot 6 inch Shimano Trevala rated for 50-100 braid. The bait used was cut carp in about half pound chunks on bottom in the bends in the river.

They were surfacing at Bridgeport last Saturday. We were chasing sandies and wipers, and I saw the water boiling across the lake. We eased over there and found it to be a large school of gar. I tried some top waters and flys, but never got a bite. They don't scare from a boat either, when we left I went right thru them on the trolling motor and they could have cared less
