Cross Lake 7/18
Checked out Cross Lake looking for gar. We had a late start (2:30pm) and didn’t see any at all as we slowly motored around the lake. We started bass fishing near the marina and my partner Phil caught a beauty – 21 1/2″ largemouth! It hit a crankbait. What a monster! We caught a few more nice bass, both largemouths and a smallie. Lots of white perch around and TONS of bait. We did see a few gar and they were big – 40″ to 45″ fish. We marked gar as well. Gar are here but they must have been deep while we were fishing. Water temps are in the mid 80s. Hot!
