On this day march 20th 2011 we were fishing the new river in jacksonville north carolina from a boat,our bait of choice fishing for bowfin and gar is whole or cut finger mullets on a 2/0 circle or alaskan hook with out any sinkers,she was using a medium heavy rod her husband bought her with 20 pound power pro braided line with a 50 pound braided leader.
We hit a 22 foot hole with a ton of activity on the surface and the fishing commenced,20 minutes in beckys rod starts to run and like a pro she let it have the bait till it ran 2 times stopped and turned the bait and took off again.
Becky hit it when it began to run and the fight was on :) 15 minutes later in the boat comes a beautiful long nose gar at 38.5 inches long ;) her second gar, but her best gar so far,hopefully there will be many many more big gar to come for her and us as well,her husband tim (my son ) landed a 45.5 12 pound long nose a few days before.

North Carolina Gar Girls Ruth & Daughter Abi
While fishing small creeks in North Carolina, Gar Girls Ruth and daughter Abi show off their recent catch. This family uses cut or whole dead baits with 20lb Power Pro braided line with a 65lb Power Pro leader and a 2/0 Alaskan hook without weight and float them with the current. When the feeding frenzy is on they land some pretty nice Gar up in the creek hills of North Carolina and we're are happy to add them to our list of girls who love Gar Fishing!

We'll See You Soon!
While keeping family tradition alive, Gar Girl Ruby, daughter of Garmaster Bob and Shelby of Wisconsin, reels in here very first Gar that measure 33 inches. Bob says "She cried at first and after some prodding we were able to get her to pose with it. We are keeping the streak alive that our kids have reeled in a gar before they turn 3. Next year we’ll start prepping Molly." Great job Ruby!

Now I don't know how well Katie does at Gar Fishing but she can sure make some beautiful scenery look even more beautiful now can't she? I stared at this photo for five minutes before I notice she was holding a Gar! Great job Katie at fishing and giving me a blood transfusion! I’m 52 years old but I ain’t dead yet!
After giving birth to a new future Wisconsin Gar Angler and getting a baby sitter to cooperate, Gar Girl Shelby returned to the water to keep pace with her husband Garmaster Bob. 10 Gar were caught and Shelby got 5 of them while tying her personal best of 44.5 inches. Great job Shelby!
