I love this video by John Williams of Pack & Paddle of him catching a big alligator gar in his kayak. It looks like John is about to put the fish grips on him at 1:35, then he goes absolutely nuts. I don’t think too many people target gar down here, but I see them a good bit when I’m sightfishing reds in the marsh. In fact last time out with Blake, I saw one that looked to be every bit as long as my boat, nearly as wide too. It was like seeing a dinosaur.
John has a bunch of other kayak fishing videos, some entertaining, some instructional, y’all should check them out: Pack & Paddle Youtube channel
