Saltwater Gar

I caught this Gar by accident. I was kayak fishing for trout and reds using a Yo-Zuri Floating Crystal Minnow when this 51 inch Gar inhaled it. Thankfull I was able to retreive that lure with no damage to the fish. As you can see I wrapped a towel around its snout so I don't get bit. Thanks to my fishing buddy Casey Stengel for taking the pic.
