Do you guys consume the Gar ? My son like to catch them and keeps wanting to try them but have heard mixed reviews on the meat being tough to cook with out ruining it .

Yes sir’s we do eat gar. 40-60lbs are best . Lot less fat in meat . We use a hammer and hatchet go down back just under scales to tail use axe to cut tail off and bleed out first . After splitting back up by front fin cut in between scales to belly both sides . Then you can cut hide back to get at backstraps cut out just like a deer . Clean off all darkmeat and red meat until it’s nice white and clean ! Then we cut into 1/4” thick steaks. Egg/milk wash batter with ground up original saltine crackers 1-1 1box to 1cup flour. Fry until golden brown.. enjoy!!

Thank you . I was wondering if they had dark or red meat and if it should be avoided and you answered those questions . Thanks .
