How much salt water can a gator gar live in? I caught these over the weekend in a canal that goes into the intercostal water way which we all know leads to the bay to the gulf so how salty is the water I wonder. I did notice that there are no oysters on the poles where I caught these and as I got closer to the gulf there were a lot so I know the water is fresher where I was.
My son put a rod out and went in for a sandwich came back to a spooled reel. That night I heard gar gasping or whatever you call it, I could hear them gulping so I rigged up and caught four. None were reel big but still fun and very unexpected as I didn't even know they were there.
