Since the Snakeheads won't Cooperate we Caught some Gar
I hit the Potomac with my stepson, its been awhile since I got out on the water, and we were after some snakeheads...unfortunately the snakeheads did not seem to eager to bite, guess they are still in spawning mode. We did however manage to catch a few Longnose Gar while out on the water...they are a blast to catch, and taste like chicken He used his bow, and I targeted them with the rod and reel....overall a awesome day with many fish caught. We kept 5 for some good eating later....Good luck to everyone who gets out on the water.

Thanks for the report and video. What were you using to catch those gar, bait or lures? Looks like they put up a good fight.

He used his bow...no bait required :) I use small rope lures...look them up. They have a rope material for the tail, which tankles in their teeth. Their long jaw is super tough to penetrate so this seems to work best.
