It also looks like it annihilated your rod into four sections. :p

Nice catch.

Was wading a local river fishing for smallmouth, the gar had come up out the lake to spawn, and they were all around us. Gave me the creeps when they kept bumping into us! Nice catch son.

Ive been killing the gar lately with rope flies. You can literally strip it past their faces or drop it on their head, they will hit it 90% of the time. It was my first flyrod species.

Yea, you can shake em right off. I take a paint stirer in the rear of their mouth and use hemostats to get it out of their teeth. With gloves on of course.

I didnt literally mean killing them...

They dont fight that amazingly to be honest. But if you do go for it let them strike and then run with it. Give them 10-15 seconds to get tangled then apply pressure. You can get them to strike about everytime but getting a solid connection is no gaurantee. Good luck and be carful "unhooking" them. They sometimes seem docile but will let out an unexpected burst of energy at times.
