I didn't have a camera with me when a buddy took to me to a small creek (may have been a river but not sure). There was this long narrow bodied fish that kept killing our minnows and small plugs. It had a long, narrow mouth (almost like a pair of needle nose pliers). I believe it was a Gar but this is my first experience with them.

Yeah. they were toothy things. And ya know sundrop. Everything quit biting at that point. I looked in the mirror to make sure I didn't have on my ncangler hat. That's usually when the bite stops for me.

Coach. you need to rub a little Gulp juice on that hat. (NCAngler) must have had that box on the counter when his wife came home with the 'nanners in the grocery bag.:)
If that doesnt do it, you'll have to squish a nightcrawler and smear it behind the sweatband..:eek:

Chain pickerel aka Jackfish have a lot of teeth also but their mouths are more vee shaped. They are pretty rough on lures and baits also. They normally are fairly small compared to gar. Still lots of fun on a light outfit.

Yeah they are. I've caught them on a few occasions. I found a blown up pic of a gar and thought I saved the link to it. But I didn't. What I caught was a Gar for sure.
