Howdy yíall. Iíve caught a multitude of gar in my life, and I absolutely love it. However, Iíve never caught an alligator gar. Iíve been trying to locate a spot that is accessible by foot or kayak to fish for them, but Iíve yet to catch or even find a decent spot. Now, I know the game, Iím not asking for someoneís special gar ďhotspotĒ. 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 Iím 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.
