Has anyone tried fishing for gar WITH OUT A HOOK?
Check this out no hook.
As a youngster, I was always told you could catch gar with panty hose.
My papaw use to catch them like that in johns creek. It works
That guy is weird. But neat video, would be fun to try. Though i have no love for gar and i cringed every time he let one of those gar go.
I used to use white trot line nylon. Like that caught a lot of Gar with no hook.
They are a really hard fighting fish. Fun to catch if you just want to catch something. It is very hard to get the rope out of their mouths. Time consuming and can be very dangerous. If you do it be prepared to possible be cut. Even though they are mostly a trash fish you should give them due diligence to remove all the rope after landing.
When I was a kid I would take a stick and put a piece of thread on it the tie on a fishing worm. I would fish for little mud cats and they would take it and hold on long enough to yank them out.
I've used a mandolin or guitar string to make a noose and thread a chunk of bluegill or shad on and have snared quite a few.
Gar in one of my favorite fish to eat. White, mild flavor and no bones,
One I caught. t was some fine eating.
So, it is a good tasting fish? Does it have tricky bones like a pike?
You just pull the backstraps out, stay above the bones. I love gar, kinda reminds you of lobster.
Sawzall and tin snips required
Nice catch Carl
If I ever catch one , I have a four inch grinder with a metal cutting blade . I think a person could rip down the back with one and open him up .
I always use tin snips but that sounds like a god idea. I might try my cordless skill saw next time. Thanks for the tip.
