Its the Gar Fish Fish Rodeo,,,,, Man I love this rodeo......
I don't know why,,,,, but I do...... I think its because of of my twisted 
childhood. Going out with my Dad on one of those frosty mornings, 
looking for clear water and garfish. What more could you ask for.
Well here we are,, Gar Fish Rodeo 2007. The first day of the rodeo, 
my "OLD" garfish buddy (my Dad) and I going to one of our best 
spots. We take a look at the water,,,, not bad. About 3 feet of vis, 
HEY,,,, its garfish ponds... what the hell do you want!!!! We get in 
the water, kick around for about 2hrs,,, not a fish. And this was our 
best spot. If it were not for the gallon of wine, we would not have 
had any fun at all.
DAY 2) Go scouting for clear water. Found nice water,but to late in 
the day to go for it. We'll try tomorrow.
Day 3)   The Old man has to work, so Scott (Mush) and I head off to 
the new promise land. Nice water, about 5 feet of vis. but no fish. 
What the HELL!!!! We decide to go to our first spot, looks diveable 
but nothing to brag about. I got 4 gar and Mush saw a few fish that 
were left unharmed due to some rules made by the DWF. We'll see 
what everyone else has at the Rodeo.. Hope to see you there.....
