I am hitting lanier with a buddy to try to catch some gar. he says that he knows what to do and has the "hookless" lures... we will see though.

Hope you all come back with all your fingers. I used to see those scary fish all the time when I worked at a YMCA camp at Lake Allatoona. The gar would scare the hell out of the kids, expecially when I would throw lunch meat in the water during "swim time".

Oh aren't you a bundle of entertainment! ha ha. My buddy has some device to open thier jaws and untangle the lure without blood loss (ours)... I will let him handle it.

Grab em good behind the gills. take a pair of good long nose needlenose pliers. You can catch a couple of fish per lure before it shreds to nothing. I have also used a 1x6 v-notched about 2'long. Set it over the edge of the boat and step on the square end, Use the v end to bring the gars nose up into. then go at it with the pliers.
One word of advice. when you see him swipe at the lure do not set the hook immediately. let him swim away with it before you pull back. then hold on. Yeah Com'n!

I have some 1x6's at the house, cool.
Now, I dont' know if my buddy knows where to go exactly, so we might spend the morning just casting. he went with a guide last weekend and they did't get a strike...
I am bringing my 5wt (incase we don't get into anything) with some clousers. maybe I will get into some bass or something.

Go to any pockets on the main lake and the main large creeks. The hotter the better. Look for rising fish. It will look like a 4'trout sipping on midges. ride around untill you see a pod rising. then head into them,cut off engine, then trolling motor closer. Be carefull, those fish are trolling motor shy. once your in the pod pick out a rising fish and cast a few yards to the side of the fish.
Unless you have weighted flies, i don't recomend blind casting. even then i don't recomend it unless you have seen the fish to know they are there.

We looked and looked and looked annd looked. we didn't see any rising to the surface. We did have a good few hours on the boat though.
