Time out

Update:
01/29/08 - Thanks to everyone for playing along. I would love to tell you some true tall tales but things are a bit hectic here at present. In case you missed the "hint" in my first comment the critter shown below is an alligator-gar.

This question is for everyone who lives above the Mason-Dixon line.


What is it?

Eckk! Since I am a new Yankee via location (a Southerner still in heart) I think I should be disqualified. Even so, through my days in southern Georgia, and a tromp or two in Eufaula and Baton Rouge - never saw one of those!

Ya'll there is only a tiny portion of that monster that is eatable ? They are quite interesting to watch and can cause quite a bit of excitement ? Mrs Zeke I'll give you a clue > " Its one of these ".

Blessings
Ron.

Alright, I'll be honest. I wasn't sure what the heck I was looking at, but somehow the word "gar" came into my head. I kid you not.

Raised in Baton Rouge, LA.

The South just gets into you, don't it? ;)

The last time I went fishing with my Papa before he died, he hooked one of these in the tail. It was about four feet long and we about never landed the thing. I can honestly say that it was about the ugliest thing I have ever seen come out of the water.

Now that the answer has been revealed,I can tell you that I am from the south and that I have seen literally thousands of these creatures, mostly in backwater streams and along river shorelines.

They are loath to take bait and their mouths are so tough that they are not regularly caught on a line, though that is not impossible.

Floridians don't count them as food fish, but Texans do.

We used to shoot them with BB guns, which irritated them a lot, as the BBs bounced off of their tough skin.

Agressive toward their food, I have often swam (swum? swimmed?)in gar-infested waters without incident. They swim away from humans (usually).

I live below the Mason-Dixon line (just barely) and I didn't have a clue as to its identity.

But I'm sure I have relatives who've eaten it...

KC, I know you have been busy with the new grandbaby and all that has been going on. Just wanted to let you know that Amy and I are thinking about y'all and praying for you. If there is anything I can do, just holler.
