    Damn Bishop, is there anything you can't harvest with improvised weapons? I have recipes for ground gar flesh balls which are simmered in broth to cook before consumption. Also have a recipe for Gar ... mock lobster, as thick cross ways steak sections which after boiling in saltwater, you fillet the muscle medalians out of the shell and serve up hot with lemon, garlic butter. Those I have cooked and ate and are yummy.

    Hey Bishop , show the whole Blow gun setup , if you don't mind . What kind of Darts are ya using , it's got to have some kind of barb on it . and how does the line feed to the gun ? They have to be pretty much right on top of the water when you shoot them or you're losing impact power thru the water , right ? As I know Gars will usually just float around on the surface . If you could show your whole setup , I'd appreciate it … Thanks

    Cajuns don't waste anything. I don't have my personal recipes readily available. Yes I have eaten gar or garfish the 2 ways i described and they were excellent table fare. I have a tendency to spring stuff like this on folks without them knowing exactly what type of fish they are eating. most never have a clue, but they would turn their noses up in the air and refuse to try something they have never eaten before. So I just say mock lobster made from fish, or fish patties or fish balls. Check out they have many garfish recipes in seafood section. 2 others that jumped out at me on this site are Garfish ala Creole, and Steamed Garfish. enjoy

    How is the line attached? I made a propane blow gun with an ignighter when I was younger and used it to take rats and squirrels.

    I take a needle and heat it up and push through the cone of the dart and do a reverse whip with the fishing line up by the dart that way the cone pops off when it hits the water and slides up the string the dart will penetrate deeper.
