looking for some good spots

Started bowfishing last year and can't seem to get enough of it. My buddies and I are planning a trip to Louisiana sometime this year but a hoping to get some stuck locally before we head over there. It will be Pretty bad to be embarassed by some "coona$$es". Although I am one, so it can't be that bad. Peyton creek and Caney creek seem to produce for us last year but no size to them. I was hoping to get on some Big Aligator Gar or some carp. If anyone has been seeing any "rough" fish around there fishing pm or post it.

Somerville is pretty good for some buffalo and carp and small gar.

We have stuck quite a few gar at Texana and in Victoria(Coleto Creek) is great for Gar, Tilapia, and Carp.

Coleto Creek has alot of little 1foot gar and it makes you get really good real quick. It also helps you judge depth because it is a sandy lake not muddy so it stays pretty clear. You can normally see 3-7 ft.

the Trinity River is always producing big gar, and also what I do is find landowners that will allow me to kill them, last summer my brother and I killed 25 gar over 5 foot long with the biggest one pushing 8 foot

I have had good luck in the Trinity for gar and when the marsh is flooded during spring time then there will be plenty of carp.

I've only been once but we had really good luck on Conroe. The area just north of Anchorage Marina has a ton of grass flats and shallow water. It's also relatively clear so even a novice like me can see the fish.

Cheers

I have heard of that place. I also have the video of the gar guys. It was all recorded there at the Lok and Dam. I Highly suggest the video if you want to see what can come out of that river. ABSOLUTE MONSTERS. They harvest several over 200lbs and believe me you would enjoy it. If I am not hunting or fishing I would rather watch someone else doing it, considering the "Quality" shows on televison.
