Any info on this picture? Did he shoot it with a bow? Catch it with a rod and reel? Is this his e-harmony profile picture?

That's a big gar. Don't think I would want it on my porch though.

A guy had a catfish farm near me a while back. He had moved here from Mississippi where he was a commercial fisherman on the Mississippi River. He fished for Gar with big hoop nets. I asked him what kind of market there was for Gar. He asked me if I ever ate at Long John Silvers. He said they were his biggest customer.

That is one big Gar. Never eaten any but I saw some at HEB some time back, did not know there was a market for them.

I've heard for years that gar are really good for the table, but I've never tried it. I need to put that on my to-do list.
