Myself and JimmyJohnny decided to take a quick trip to Clarks Hill to try some new waters. At first I thought the trip was destined to be a bad one!!! We planned on leaving around 2 or 3 o'clock in the evening so we could scout out and find some structure. One thing led to another and some things beyond my control made me become fasionably late and arrive at Jim's house nearly 6:30 pm. As we are loding jim's stuff and about to leave I noticed a big knott on the side of my boat trailer tire, so then I began changing the tire on our already doomed trip! Finally got the tire on and we were on the road!!!! Only to stop half a mile down the road to gas up boat and truck..LOL...We just couldn't get going! We finally found our way to the lake and got our rods in the water at 10:45pm!! After about a thirty minute wait bam Jim's rod goes down......and the Gar Master begins what would soon be a gar smackdown!!!!!:confused2: Just kidding Night Stalker I know you already have a nickname!!!:smile2: So after about 10 minutes after the first gar I find myself netting the first of several cats that jim would catch (along with about 4 or 5 gar). It was a beauty 26 pound flathead. The rest of the knight was riddled with gar , Stripers and Channel cats biting every now and then. We caught several nice Channel with the biggest around 8 pounds and several in the 4 to 5 pound range. Jim caught most of the fish and out fished me nearly 3 to 1.:sad2: We ended up bringing home 4 stripers and 5 channels with all other fish being released to fight another day! ( including the 26lb flathead) We fished until about 9:00am and then had to drive back to Liberty so I am pretty wore out, Think i'll take a nap now. Maybe Jim will post some pictures soon as they are all on his camera.
