I caught about an 80 pound gar from the banks of Lake Ponchartrain. Caught a 30 or 40 lb jack crevalle on the beach at Grand Isle.
Now that I'm hearing about these Spring time Makos in Destin, I'm considering bringing the Chicago shoreline salmon fishing technique of POWERLINING to the beach there!
I'm getting ready for next year. Getting some Finn Nor 12/0s to bring to the beach with my CO2 tanks!
More about Powerlining to get your line out 300-400 yards from the bank: LINK

Will post pics of the first ever 1,000 pound Mako caught from the beach next April.
