    I took a short paddle down Big Walnut in Columbus the other day & though I cought a few nice smallies those toothy Gar were working the top & were willing. Cought most of them on a mod. Rapala X-rap & small spinners no serious size (up to mid 30's) & lots of small Fish. If your not pressed for time & looking for a fight I'd say wade the creeks in search of these rough dudes, your sure to have a good time - Will try to remember the camera next time :mad: Good luck - Gary

    Big Nut sure is full of those fish! I can usually get one out of there every time I fish it. I've found live bait works best for them, if you are using a standard hook. Instead of nipping at the end like they will do with a twister, they seem to go at it hardcore if they taste real fish! Take any pics? I love gar pics!
