I didn't even know they were etible. The ones caught down here are in the canals and easements and mangroves, which are all brackish waters.
When the guys catch them,they usually just leave them on the banks for the flys, or birds. They are the nastiest, meanest looking things. I see why the gators in the same waters have marks all over their bodies.
Someone would have to feed me them headless or in some other form to make me try them. YIK!

Lol the ones my Dad caught fortunately looked nothing like these. The ones I had have a lot of small bones in them that you end up eating anyways.

I wonder what those alligator gar fish taste like, don't think you get them down under lol

Oh Bucky.... there's a couple of surly looking Muskies and Northern Pike out back that would like to have a word with you about that statement about "only down south". I um... wouldn't go alone.
