Her unusual appearance. The body of the Gar is incredibly long and very slender. However, this small fish is a fast swimmer and strong beats, when placed on a fishing tackle. She often jumps out of the water, this is done in order to escape.
The average size is about 200 mm in length, although they come across twice. The lower jaw is extended forward.
Despite the fact that they are quite widespread, they are difficult to detect. Basically, they swim right at the surface, but because they are so well hidden, it is rather difficult to see. The Sargan upper part of the body greenish-blue, and silvery-white belly. If you keep it in the light, they seem almost transparent. This color scheme helps to hide her from predatory fish and sea birds.
The Sargan fairly small mouth, so it is necessary to fish with small hooks. Size 10 — 12 with the barbed shank fits best, because they are well kept, small pieces of bait. Fishermen, as a rule, mainly use various crankbaits, wersalki or vibrating lures. But, happily, they grab it and live baits such as mussels and small crustaceans.
To catch a Gar is best to use a float rod or spinning tackle. Remember, they live just below the surface of the water, therefore adjust the depth of the gear.
The garðar very good in taste, but you need to avoid an abundance of small bones in her body.
