My dad and I caught it on a jig with 15 lb. line. Ended up weighing 33 lbs! We released it to live another day. It could be a lake record after its next meal.

Hopefully one like that pays me a visit tonight but so far I've only had one run off from a gar. I'm anchored on my most consistent producing spot but the cold front had things quiet so far hence the reason I'm sitting here on my phone surfing the web while I'm fishing lol
 
I was out last night looking in the back of flowery branch. I was using some chicken liver. I didn't mark anything, but still fished and didn't catch anything. Any pointers?
 
That one has some shoulders on it for sure! :cheers:

Don't use chicken livers. Use some fresh cut bait.

Thanks y'all! Larsdm11 wish I could help you but I'm just a bass fisherman lol. He bit a bream colored jig in 4 feet of water.
