Another Gar-reat Day!

We had Steve and Taylor out yesterday chasing after a variety of Lake Champlain species. The day started out rough weather-wise.... That was no 6mph wind out of the north, much closer to 15 mph with 25 mph gusts... brutal to paddle in. Taylor hooked into two bowfin but both took him into the weeds and broke him off.

We switched gears and headed elsewhere. The wind calmed down and the sun came out and the gar started showing themselves. Taylor made the best of it and landed this gorgeous 44" specimen!  Great fish!  Steve had some takes but unfortunately no "unhooked hook ups". Taylor also had a take right next to the boat with a fish that was much longer than my stablizer- at least 50", certainly one of the biggest gar I have seen!  I know where he lives if you want a trip!  Let me put you on one of these beasts! You will love it! Taylor definitely did!
Nice Master Class fish for Taylor while fishing with Master Class Angling!


  1. Saw you guys while you were going for bowfin in the morning. Sorry you didn't get any. That's why we were there. I had to get a friend some species firsts.

  2. Awesome gar Taylor! You sure know how to put these guys on fish Drew.

  3. Hey Jody, Taylor had two on that broke him in the weeds. That's what they do sometimes! Thanks John!
