Something I forgot to mention in my report is that the gar are schooling and are just thick in some spots.  If the water is calm it is pretty easy to spot them as they are up on top and swirling, and I assume eating shad.

I don't know how much longer they will be up as it gets colder.

Was looking around for some gar videos and found this one - the guy does a good job on explaining on how to make a rope lure and then proceeds to catch a few.

I believe Brian Jones was chasing them for a while.   He reported the use of straps and having a great time with them.

I am the master of my unspoken words, and the slave to those that should have remained unsaid. (unknown)

@Quillback i have tried similar gar baits that @BilletHead gave me when I fished Mingo. Had 7 hit but couldn't  land one. I didn't  let them get as wrapped as this guy was talking about. So I just pulled it out of their mouths. Have to try again👍

Looks like the getting wrapped thing is the deal - didn't know about that either.
