    Default Since the Snakeheads won't Cooperate we Caught some Gar...Bow and Hook

    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.

    I hope to get out on Friday and catch a few more and do a video on cleaning and cooking them...hope the water is clear enough after all this rain. Believe it or not they are pretty good, look up Gar balls...its a pretty common way to do them up. They taste like and have the consistency of chicken.

    The only big thing with the Gar in the Potomac is that it used to be you could take as many as you wanted....but now are only allowed to harvest 5....so just a heads up to anyone venturing out there.
