Gar, Spotted

<p>What a treat. Blasted this guy with a rapala while wading in a giant rushing river in southern IL. I was SO scared he was gonna shake the hook before I netted him!!! The river gods smiled on me and I had to use a pliers to get it out of his snout!!&nbsp;</p>

Super stoked when I saw him on the end of the line, only thing I could think of was HURRY HURRY HURRY to get him in the net before he came off!

Do not meddle in the affairs of BAGMAN, for thou art crunchy and good with Old Bay seasoning...
