I'm counting down my last few days in Virginia before I head to Jax FL for school. Yesterday was my last day in the kayak for a long time and I wanted to get one last round going after one of my favorite fish. I caught several small ones feeding surprisingly deep and landed two very decent sized gar, the biggest one being 39" long and the other 36". Both fought impressively well, so much fun.

      Sounds great, we need some folks on the FWC commission with actual science backgrounds, not developers and real estate lawyers like we have now. Hope it goes well, ...more you should bring that kayak down!
