Default First gar!!

Went out to lake miltmore and had a **** of a day. Carp and gar were both spawning. Nailed 5 carp all at or around 10lbs. Had two pull off. But that was in 4ft of water so I wasnt upset. There were MASSIVE gar spawning on top of a beaver lodge but there was no way I was going to shoot at them. 4 of them had to be atleast 36inches. Got one that was stupid enough to swim into open water. Unfortunetly it was the smallest I saw but it was still my first gar





1.8lbs

I'm not quite sure where mundelien is. But I will be out on the chain all week. I will be moving at the end of next week.
