Gar season has picked up really nice. Went out today and saw a few 5 footers rolling but out of shooting range. Got a shot at one but spooled out before it reached.

So...what do you do with those after you kill em? Are they edible, or what's the deal?

Was out fishing for trout and this far comes out of nowhere and is just cruising under the lights. Run to the truck and get the bow and let her have it. I wanna say around a five footer.

Have caught and eaten a few big ones growing up as well out of the Nueces. Friend of mine has a funny story of a 7 footer he caught back around 90' on the lake side of the dam of Mathis one night and smashed his head with dam boulders. Him and another buddy drug it back to his old 280z after a few hours of bass fishing the rocks and loaded the dead fish in with head/teeth back of hatch with tail through middle of front seat. They get about twenty minutes down the road other side of Orange Grove and the mfer came back to life on them. Lol. Pulled over to side of road real quick and it trashed his car. Lol.

We did hang quite a few big heads on back of property fence post and bbq the fish up. The original grilled "on the half shell" fish. Lol. Didn't do the fry thing back then cause didn't know about cooking it like that.
