when i was a younger i was swimming across lake travis at muleshoe bend and my buddy was along side me with the raft and hes stood up and said get in the boat, not asking anny qustions i quickly got in. we paddled up to a huge gar prbly 6 ft long just floating on top of the water not moving. we got right next to it and i grabbed it behind the head, wow did i get a surprize, that gar pulled me out of the boat so fast i coudnt even register what had happened. i got back int that boat quicker that a cat on cut bait. come to find out those gar are sunning them selves onto of the water. wish id known that a little sooner.
