Gar, Spotted

<p>Hundreds of spotted and shortnose gar were going bonkers, leaping, feasting on shad, and generally making me very happy. Both my hands had blisters from setting the hook and fighting fish. Caught at least 2 dozen shortnose and half a dozen spotted (and snagged many more of each) before 8AM. southern Illinois.</p>
