"You fish for GAR?!? That ain't right. That just ain't right."

Actual quote from an otherwise terrific waitress at the West Side Cafe, Benton, Illinois


"Are you SICK in the HEAD?"

Actual quote from a Wisconsin
DNR official in response to a
request for gar fishing hotspots

Yes. We are. You must be too.
Welcome to the oddball world

We at GASS are dedicated
to promoting the gar as
worthy of sporting and
scientific interest. Enjoy!
