heres a nice long nose gar for ya
do u eat them...... lol sorry i dont know i have never fished for/ cought a gar
but that looks like a nice one
I hear they make good cut bait, but only caught one in my life. Try to stay away from them buggers.
everyday at lunch we see Gar popping at the top of the water.. Lost alot of lures to those things..
I see them all the time when I'm out on the lake. Shot several bowfishing, they are good to eat.
why do they pop out of the water like that??? i've heard its because of something called an air bladder.....but idk
I snag bait them all the time i like the fight.
They are good to eat, but you have to eat them while they are hot. You let 'em cool off and they are nasty.
never caught a gar - would like to, neat looking fish
Gar are able to survive in waters with a lower oxygen content because they can surface and "gulp" air to supplement what they get from the water.
If you see gar doing this, and they aren't feeding, it's time to move. Oxygen levels are getting too low for the other fish and if they are there, they want to leave soon.
Looks alittle bit smaller than the one I caught not too long ago.
Looks like the one I caught at Lake Arrowhead in Wichita Fallas, TX last year on July 4th weekend. It was hot and I was falling asleep and then bam. Good fighting fish. I got him to the surface and saw he was a gar and looked at lawnman61 and said "Hoe do I get him off?" and before he could answer he jerked and away he went. Thank goodness.
Nic Pic, but I throw all mine back.
I caught one last summer on and pulled out my knife to make cut bait...yeah well i ended up having to get out the saw cuz it's outer shell was so tough. And the inside of the fish looked hollow. WIERD FISH lol.
Fun to catch when nothing is biting never tryed to eat one next one icatch going to try it:cool2:
ive heard that their eggs are poisionous. seems every one i clean my hands break out. no biggie, just F.Y.I.
