    I hear they make good cut bait, but only caught one in my life. Try to stay away from them buggers.

    I see them all the time when I'm out on the lake. Shot several bowfishing, they are good to eat.

    They are good to eat, but you have to eat them while they are hot. You let 'em cool off and they are nasty.

    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 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.

    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.
