Longnose Gar

4 posts in this topic

So I was fishing by shore under the bridge by redwood and caught a longnose gar...I was fishing for catfish and ended up catching one of these....I'm suprised it didn't snap the line because of its sharp (Contact Us Please) teeth...I was just wondering if these fish are common on the river or if they are rare...I obviously didn't keep it because I don't know how eating one of these weird lookin things would be or even if a person can keep them

There is a lot of gar in the MN river.

Most of the gar in the MN river are shortnose gar. I would think that a longnose gar caught where you where fishing would be a rare catch.

I've only personally caught shortnose gar, and I fish around Renville, Granite, and Redwood often. Great catch!!!
