Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report

Jay, Never caught one in 20plus years of fishing the beach in BL but this past Thursday towards sunset I hooked up a gar. Was using a 4oz cripple herring on my surf pole casting over the breakers about 100 yds out reeling in medium speed when it hit and immediately went air. My jaw dropped when I saw it for I had no idea what the hell it was. Good fight and when I landed it I thought needlefish but that big?. Body length about 2 ft., bill about 8 inches. Girth about the size of a Pringles tube, limeish green topside and bottom white, just beautiful. Trouble getting hook out of bill (teeth looked real sharp) but released it and it swam off. Research on web indicated it was a gar but not the actual name. Any ideas? Andre
