Huge Aligator Garfish

Reply
Want to see some huge Garfish lurking just below the surface where you would not think they would be? Well, my friend and neighbor, Ray at Bridge Side RV's community will be on Paradise Louisiana TV show. They will film this week. Just don't know when on TV. His recent landings are well over 100 pounds and many of them.

Back in the day (The 60's) in my dad's boat we were picking croakers from a drag in Belle Pass. We were in his 20' Thunderbird the 'My Witch' when a huge gar surfaced beside the boat, but it was bigger than the boat with barnacles all crusted on its head and back. It was quite a sight. It stayed on the surface just a few feet away for about a minute and then slowly submerged like we weren't there. Sonny and I looked at each other in amazement. I'll take that memory to the grave.

Hi again Michael, Yep, I remember the My Witch. Boy, were those good croakers back then, big and slimy to get those long gone 6,7, and 8 pounders. Terry and I talked a little about you 4th. of July weekend. Don't worry all good, LOL...

Yes sir, it's all good. Sonny just turned 89, how much I'd enjoy taking him on a trip, but it's not to be. His memories and how he affected myself and great folks like yourself, Terry, Bootsie and others will live on.
