Gar or not? (Longtom)

Question

Hey guys,

was out having a flick with a popper for the first time and caught my first ever fish on a lure... looks like a gar but not sure.

Easy way to tell the difference is stick your finger in its mouth- if you end up screaming in pain-its a longtom- if you dont-its a gar!!!

They often are hard to hook because of their Toothy/Boney Mouth, good catch for your first lure caught fish.

Was good to watch it swim up and take the lure.

Yeah it was really crazy to watch it just smash it. Was a really good first lure catch.
