we fished a the river right after some floods and the water temps were down, we had a big bait (5 pound common carps head) get picked up earlier in the day and then dropped after nearly 20 minutes of it eating. Allyse got this little 45 inch alligator gar after i set the hook for her. hoping to get on a few more gar this year before the night time temps make them stop eating until next year.
