WTG Chuck, great fish and a great pic!

I'm guessing this was your annual trip there with Gitter?

What a blast nuts

That is one beautiful fish Chuck. Nice catch and congratulations on yet another record fish! woot I have heard that gar usually go into a somewhat hibernating mode during the winter time. Is this true? Also would this hold true in a warm water lake such as Calaveras? hmmm Any one who know's gar patterns feel free to reply! woot

It seems that I have seen most of the gar I see during the summer and early fall months. Do not see any during the winter.

Thanks Gitter for the reply. cheers Caught my PB on Lake Placid. 56" Long and about 35 lbs. It is the current C&R Lake Placid Longnose Gar Record as well as the weight record. It was also a State C&R Record but has been beaten several times. thumb
