Gar are sometimes referred to as garbage fish since they are not gamefish and are generally assumed to be inedible. On the other hand, Gar may be eaten, and when hooked, they fight strongly. This is an ancient species, a needle-nosed armored fish that looks like a sturgeon and can grow to be 100 pounds or more. Landing a massive gar is a thrilling experience.

Drums made of freshwater (Aplodinotus grunniens)
Freshwater drums grow to be large and fierce fighters. They are known as sheepshead or sheepshead in some parts of North America. They’re frequently found in the same waters as walleye, and they’re often caught while fishing for other species. A big drum will give you all the fight you can handle on bass tackle—a jig-and-pig is especially effective when feeling for freshwater drums. Many people do eat drumfish and say they are very good. According to some research, the freshwater drum can help control invasive zebra mussels by eating them.
