I can't wait till I see the gar at the surface again. I haven't seen one in a while since it has been getting colder. Gar are my #2 favorite fish to catch. It is fun, exciting and challenging. When I see the big one sitting in front of me, I bait up and cast my cut bait right in front of its snout. I never know if that hook will snag him or if he will spit it out. Sometimes they are throat hooked, and I cut the line hoping they will live. Man they are fun, that's why they are my #2 favorite.
