    We went out fishing last night for some blue cat. Couldn't get a bite at all, but we did catch this thing ... must be why the cats weren't around :crazy:

    Congrats on a heck of a Gar. I bet that was fun to catch. I'd like to catch one some day but in a way I'm lucky since I haven't...:roll_eyes::wink::smile2:

    My friend always told me you could catch these. I never believed him, but I did some looking around an verified his statement. I don't know anyone who has caught one, but I would love to see someone get one. Not sure what I would do if I caught one myself.

    That's a pretty good needle nose gar. Be sure and check your lines and leaders now that ya caught him. More than likely you'll have to replace the leader if ya was using one and if not you'll more than likely have to rerig and strp off the chewed up line.:eek:oooh:

    why in the world did you bring him to your house? to eat? we always get a quick picture and throw the stinky spotted funky fish back in the water. good size one though.
