I was out on the LMR yesterday (7/5), I caught several smallmouth, 1 largemouth and I fought a gar up to shore before it broke me off. The smallmouth were in the neighborhood of 12, fun but not photo worthy. The largemouth wasnt much bigger than my lure; I always get a laugh out of that a Bass Pro XPS extreme nitro minnow btw. The gar was pretty good sized, I fought it for a while; I was in the water and leading it to a place where I could beach it and it took off one last time and the ol 6 lb copolymer couldnt take it any more. I had a few canoes full people watching me at that point; I thought that was kind of funny. There were a bunch of 10 12 year old boys cheering me on; they were more disappointed than I was when the gar broke off.
