Yesterday I fished with Kirk Kirkland of Trinity, Texas.
This was on my "bucket list." Always had a desire to fish for Alligator Gar here in Texas. After doing some research, I chose Kirk for my guide. And I needed a guide. After spending a day with Kirk, I realized that without Kirk I never would have landed a single fish yesterday.
Kirk knows his stuff. He knows what those gar will do and when they will do it. Kirk has special techniques for catching a monster gar even if they wrap the line around a submerged tree.
Kirk knows how to set up the rig and bait.
Custom built boat just for pole fishing for gar.
Private boat ramp so your valuables are safe in the ruck while you are on the water.
Talks to the fisherman in a kind, polite manner.
Knows how to get those monsters in the boat.
Has a method for safely getting that monster fish in your lap for a presentation photo.
Always gets that gar back into the water safely so that he can be caught again.
Excellent communication skills for setting up the dates.
Knows how to do it all. I HIGHLY recommend Kirk for Alligator Gar fishing here in Texas, catch and release with rod and reel / pole. And I was an African Safari booking agent for 7 years, I know a good guide!
