Howdy y’all. I’ve caught a multitude of gar in my life, and I absolutely love it. However, I’ve never caught an alligator gar. I’ve been trying to locate a spot that is accessible by foot or kayak to fish for them, but I’ve yet to catch or even find a decent spot. Now, I know the game, I’m not asking for someone’s special gar “hotspot”. But, if someone would be so kind as to send a PM as to where I can go, that would be greatly appreciated. I live in Carrollton, which is why I’m having a hard time.

Drive down to US 287 south east of Richland chambers. There is a real boat ramp. You dont need to paddle far.
