Yes, it does. =)
I agree about the need for gar. Last night I did some fishing in the real world equivalent of this location. If you head out from the harbor, turn right (south) and go down a mile or so, when the main channel breaks to the right (west) there's a slough that breaks off to the left (east.) Go down that slough until it opens up to a shallow bay to your left, before the slough turns hard right. At that bend is one of my favorite catfish spots. I fished there from 9 PM till 2:30 AM last night and caught 2 flatheads, both about 7 or 8 pounds, and had numerous bites from longnose gar. They usually just play with the baits (live bluegills) but occasionally one will get hooked throughly. I had a monster to the boat last night. I tried to take a picture using my phone and head lamp, but gave up on that. I eventually decided to net it and bring it aboard, though usually with gar I release them in the water. I've caught one that I measured at 50 inches before, but this one was bigger. 52? 54? I can't say, but it was a freaky fish. I would have thought it was an alligator gar if we had any around here. Since we don't I can safely say it was just a really big longnose gar. As I was getting the net it position (huge musky net in one hand, musky rod with this fish on in the other) it made a final thrash away from the boat and came loose, in the process yanking my rod hand into the rod holder on the side of the boat. My hand is a bit torn up from that, but I would probably have been bleeding if I'd got it into the boat anyway. Handling those critters is always an adventure.
Anyway, I'll plan on adding gar to the game soon.
Has anyone caught a big (30+ pound) catfishing yet?
