    I went out yesterday and shoot 20-25 carp. All under 5 lbs. they are starting to move up in the shallows to spawn. I did get 2 longnose gar, they were about 30" and very dark in color. I tried for some crappie and only caught 3 that were about 4-5" long. I caught them on a pink roadrunner. Overall it was a great day to get out and about. If someone would like to go out and bowfish, just drop me a line.

    I went out to Hoover with my son and had a great day of bowfishing. We eneded up with 18 nice gar all over 30". I got one just under 40". Here is a pic of my son and I.

    Don't know if you catfish, but fillet that gar. It makes good bait.
