Spent the day (14 hrs) on the Cimarron river branch off of Keystone yesterday. Started off good with Shad easy to find. I've seen this as a bad omen for me in the past. Well you could walk around on top of the Gar. I fished the flats and coves trying to get away from them. I could locate what I am sure was Blues but the Gar would strip off my bait before they could get to it. I caught a few (very few) small ones. Finally resorted to a little drifting and caught one that went 12. Those Gar were everywhere in the river and hitting anything in the water. Not returning there for a while.
