  5. Lateral Line

    Lateral Line The Sea Refuses No River...

    Makes one wonder how many millions of years a fish of that type has been swimming around. The seem to be a perfect eating machine. Slender powerful body, camouflage markings and colors, and oh that mouth. Not much getting out of that once it snaps down.
    Too bad they have a reputation as a "trash" fish.
    How did you catch that one?
     
  6. Hey,latteral line..if you come down to lake murray..you can catch them pretty easy,,before that one I had one up to the boat about 10lbs,,he broke off,,,and I cant understand they keeppa showing my hands and not my face on T.V....Ha..HAkk....LOL...

    has anyone tried eating a gar? ???They are actually pretty good, maybe not Canadian Walleye, but not too bad, it is a firm white meat. The worst part is skinning them.
