Caught my first Gar last weekend! woo hoo!
Yes, I had gloves on to grab it and unhook it, but took them off for the picture!
Actually, I thought the fish was Gorgeous!
It was well behaved too.
Caught it using a perch minnow on a #4 hook under a bobber.
and yes, I was targeting Gar.
Almost caught one a few nights prior.. but hubby grabbed the line to grab the fish... because I was being a smart@ss and said "Go ahead David, reach down there and grab it!"
You see, I KNEW it had teeth.. lots of teeth.. um.. I guess David didn't know that until he SAW them... I can laugh now, but I was POed when I lost the fish. It came up out of the water, he went to grab it.. screamed like a man, the fish flicked it's tail and broke off.
here is my new fish... yes, I let it go.
But it has been stricken from my "fish to-do" list!
