It is getting closer to spring, when the water temps start to rise. In a couple months the gar will start coming out, and man I cant wait to go gar fishing. I will start catfishing around late March, and I will get out my gar gear when I start seeing them rise to the surface. Cast net, rod, reel, line, and hook, and maybe a leader is all I will need. Go down to the rocky swift areas and catch some shiners & redhorse, then put them in a ziplock bag and trek upstream to the big deep hole where the biggest gar live. That is my life during the summer. Who else is waiting eagerly for those gar to come out??
