Whats the best way to Farm for a Gar?

  1. I've tried for so long to get one. its one of those rare fish that seems like it should be more valuable due to its limited spawn location. any tips on how i should go about it?

  2. Additional Details:
    the problem is i almost never see it. and theres only 1 lake that it can show up in. so its usually other garbage that i already have. sometimes it IS garbage. what im tryin to ask is, is there some method i can do to make it spawn more easily IE scaring the fish running away coming back and repeating till its there? or maybe someone has a better method?

  1. Sometimes, Saving and Continuing will help as that refreshes all the bugs and fish in your town.

    It is not really a rare fish, it is just not that often that it appears.
    But yeah, just scare the smaller fish off. You do it like you do with other fish/shark.
    Scare off the small fries until the one that you are looking for arrives.
    It will be pretty obvious it is a Gar by the size.

    Also, you need to catch it between 4pm and 9am. That is the only time it spawns. I have better luck late at night.

    Any earlier and you'd be getting Giant Snakeheads.

  1. I get mine all the time in the pool/lake areas of the river.
    It is a very large shadow in the water.
