The spillway full of them on both sides. Fish you some jugs at nite with cut bait. They also seem to like chicken necks with the skin while I try to crab. Hope you catch them all. I been seeing some look like they go a hundred pounds 5 - 6 foot long.

I have fished ponchatrain for gars for many years. Unfortunately the monsters come out at night. Not the enviornment to expose kids and gar fish. A friend of mine told me a story where he caught a 9 footer one night by accident. When he got it near his boat the fish came out of the water and got his hand. Luckey he had his service revolver. I thought it was just an old fish story until he showed me the pics. He almost lost his had to infection. Gars are nothing to triffle with. Never trust them to be dead if they still have a head.

Thanks guys. I'm gonna give it a shot once some of this weather clears up. Seems like every chance I get to do some fishing the rain screws it up.
