    wow Randy, I have been chomping at the bit to see some of those finished out on a knife since you emailed me a pic of those stabilized scales. Talk about a worthwhile experiment, you and your stabilizing guys are like pioneers or something hehe.

    A server caught us an alligator gar for staff meal about a month ago. The flesh was surprisingly good, but it was a nightmare to get through that tough skin. High pressure on poultry shears through the anal vent eventually got it, when the bone saw wouldn't touch it. Once you're inside though you can just separate away from the skin an it's fairly easy. Tastes like a predator fish for sure.

    Not to sidetrack too much, but that would be a kick-ass name for a band.

    Sorry, I get REALLY excited about fish. I wish it was easier to get at the flesh, they taste really good, and are a dime a dozen around any dock in LA if you chum a little.

    Its all good! Thanks for sharing.. I have never eaten a Gar.

    We have a species of gar pike here in Michigan that grow quite large. Buy nothing in comparison to the Alligator Gar Pike from down south. I didnt know they were also in LA.
