    I made a new friend today!
    We were in the Oak Orchard Creek in Kent, NY.
    Saw a few Salmon in the creek too... in the next
    2 months, the salmon will be full force in the creek!

    Caught on a minnow.
    It was the only one that we caught today.
    After this one, no more would bite.
    They were porpoising everywhere, but no takers!
    This was my first ever gar.. it was a fish on my TO DO list of fish! And yes, I enjoyed catching it and will catch more for sure!

    Celeste caught a Perch and a small largemouth bass too.
    Netboy was skunked. Yes, I did feel sorry for him.

    Thanks Okie.

    I have a necklace made from the scale of an alligator gar.
    It was 7 feet long! [​IMG]

    Those are the most beautiful and clear pics ever! Did you use a special camera? Daughter is very photogenic, so this helps make the shot, I'm sure! [​IMG]

    What do they taste like? (chicken?) I've always liked gar because it's a fantastic Scrabble word. Never saw one though!

    Thanks! It being a nice sunny day helped!

    I have a Kodak Easyshare Z712IS camera.
    I am learning how to use it and when set on the
    smart scene setting, it does a lot of the work.
    I just need to make sure it's in focus!

    it has taken me almost a year to get the hang of it though.
    I was trying too hard before!
