JUst saw my first Gar in Cabela's.....WEIRD.... I'm just getting in the swing of things and pretty new fishing fresh water. Welll here I am need some basic info on what I need to catch a gar.. I am completly new to this so bare with me on my dumb questions. Are a Edible.. 15 pound test ok?? What do you catch them on.. (ROPE LURES DO THEY JUST TANGLE UP) Are there nose or any part of thier body poisonous.. I will be fishing from a sit on top kayak and think the sled ride would be great now landing the beast is a different story.. Are they agressive such as a Salt water Wahoo/King Mackrel??? Will beating on them on thier head with a billy stick mellow them out??? Due to the Aligator Like Skin. If I am taking it home to eat? Once again sorry for the dumb questions I honestly dont know. If you ever need info on fishing of a yak in the Salt I can advise ARRRGH!
