Madeline went fishing at Sangchris this morning and I tagged four commons while checking out a few new coves. I missed a few more and saw a bunch. This lake is loaded with 'em.

Snuffy and I went to Georgetown lake this afternoon, Weather was very windy and water cloudy, Did manage 12 common, snuffy 6 and me 6 plus we each had two pull off's. Ended up a lot better that we thought when we first started. We even towed 5 tube'er up the river so they could float back down They did not help out in two of the best coves. See a lot of Puff's. better than mowing the grass.

I WISH I was mowing the grass. I've been painting my front porch and installing some ceiling fans. I'm bushed. Time to catch some sleep and dream of nailing a 4 foot gar in mid-roll.

I just got back from Lake Mermit down near Metropolis Illinois and got to shot my 1st long nose gar... that lake is just packed full of them... I was just bowfishing from the bank and small docks... what a blast
I shot 3 long nose gar
I had one huge one I shot literly bite my line in half and swim off with my arrow in him... only to have him swim back to shore so I went in the water after him I grabbed the arrow UNTIL.... He swung around towards my hands and I saw those teeth... so being I already lost part of one finger this year I opted to let go and get away from those teeth and that blasted fish left me standing there in the water as I once again watched him swim away with my arrow.... So a trip to Gander Mountain in Paducah was needed and I bought another bowfishing arrow... but then I shot this one with the new arrow..... WHAT A BLAST

Awesome! I'm putting that photo in our photo gallery. www.illinoisbowfishers.com/clickgallery/public.asp



Yeah, some of those southern lakes are practically choked full of gar. You'll make a lot of the fisheries guys happy by removing some of them. They don't get much fishing pressure otherwise.

(and just for the record, that's abig spotted gar, longnose have really, really long skinny noses)

You gotta luv the attitude of a gar!

How'd you do at the tourny?
