i went out monday evening to fish some wing damns on the mississippi above Quincy il. the first cast i caught an 8# flat. i was using 6" live shad. I was fishing off the point where it hit the channel. after that first cast i never caught another fish. i had lots of hits the only thing i caught was a big gar. do you think all those other bites were gar also? I was fishing in 20-30 feet of water. i didn't think gar really hung out that deep? I just can't figure out how to catch them cats consistently!
