well my plan is to try and harvest 1 by bow and eat it. If i like it i will likely do it again. But i am not into a slaughter for fun without eating them. I rarely keep fish i catch so as much fun as bowfishing looks to be i dont know if i will partake it it often. You cant exactly throw them back with a hole in them. But i will defenetly try to catch and release them using mullet for bait.

I never thought of eating Gar. Just did a quick Bing search and sure enough there are several recipes. I've always thought of them as falling into the category of not something I would want to eat.

Seems Gar have turned into quite the sport fish.

As kids we used to catch Gar off of a bridge just down the road... it was a lot of fun but we threw them all back because nobody wanted to eat them lol.

i thought they werent good either. I think the same about carp. The only reason i knew you could eat gar was because i have been doing alot of research about fishing in the Austin area and came across videos and articles about gar. Here in CT we dont have gar but i have caught long nose gar in Lake Champlain. I will post a pic of that soon.
