Mark Beason took Michael Faw, an outdoor writer from Ohio, and me out gar fishing Tuesday, July 31 and it was a blast. A first for both of us. We went to Sardis Lake which is a favorite for Mark and this type of fishing. We fished with conventional tackle baitcast and spinning rods. The unconventional part is that we used no hooks! Notice the bait a piece of “shredded” cotton rope!
We were into fish pretty quick and while not an ideal day (according to Mark) we probably got nine or ten. Big fish was over 25lbs.
We are going out after a world record next year on the fly rod.
