I can think of better things to try to catch than a freakin gar. But on the bright side you won't have to buy hooks.
My dad tried to get me to eat frog legs when I was little. He said they tasted like chicken. I wouldn't eat chicken for 6 months. After I got older I tried them and they were just as nasty as I thought they would be.You know everything tastes like chicken....except chicken!
