New State Record Gar Arrowed Out Of K.D.


Recommended Posts

I got this as a txt FWD from a friend of my moms that I fish w/ a lot and he said he heard this beat the old MN state record by 1.5lbs, which was shot by a bow fisherman on Kelly-Dudley 50" anybody know anything more about this?

Very well might beat the state record, but it won't go in the books as like CMJ said it must be caught.

Very cool fish though! Congrats to the lucky angler!

I will send my kids back down to the lake now. smile I know the DNR netted 2 of them in the last survey....wasn't that big, so there must be many more in here.

Nice fish!

I have not seen a gar up close. What danger do they present to a swimmer ? Are they aggressive or would danger be from accidental contact. They bite or bad to step on or what?

Do they hang out in the shallows or deep ?

Curious looking creature...

Ok, from what I googled I found that an attack would be a result of pulling one into the boat or stepping on one. I did not find where they will attack out of spite. What I did find on Snopes (search on GAR) was a nice picture of a Gar that probably would find Mongo to be suitable snack.

If the link won't fly here try snopes keyword gar.

I would rather see you post the information direct rather than using the link. Thank you.

A fish that size would need a much bigger meal than that Mongo.

Oh man, that's brutal.

We used to catch smaller ones out in South Dakota - usually by accident. A friend of mine tried cleaning and eating one - it took a tin snips to get through the skin - and after trying it like "poor man's lobster" - it probably wasn't worth the effort...

Here is a picture of what morneau and I caught tonight on KD, trolling.

That Lakemaid I caught was pretty nice though....

So... Does anybody have any more information about this fish? Was it taken at night or during the day?

      How’s the the smallie bite? I’ll be up on Friday 😎 ~Tripp

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.
    • Hookmaster
      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
