Never forget your roots. I started in the kayak fishing for gar, so i decided to get back in it. Managed half a dozen gar up to just under 6 foot today on the trinity river here in Texas, and had exactly one chance at a fish over 7 foot.

Kayak fishing for gar is pretty intense, the river has a very different feel to it when you are solo sitting so low in a kayak. Any gar is a good fight from a kayak i have been trying to break the 7 foot mark on Alligator gar from the kayak for years now it is not an easy task by any means and i have failed miserably many times usually my fight with 7 foot gar ends with them running through underwater trees.
Im paddling my Malibu Mini-X its a 9 foot 6 inch extreme kayak made to be extremely stable and compact. With no exaggeration it is possible to hook an alligator gar the exact same size as my kayak. I have caught allot of gar around 5 and 6 foot from the kayak and tend to do pretty well at it but once they hit that 7 foot range the game changes completely.
