    Chop the head and tail off with a machete or hatchet or bandsaw (don't ask,) then go down the center of the back with snips or shears, and cut out the backstraps just like you would a deer. You will wind up with two pieces of clean, white, boneless meat that is great fried, blackened, or grilled, as long as you don't overcook it. Gar meat isn't like most fish. It's not flaky, and doesn't taste fishy. It's somewhat of a texture/taste between lobster and alligator tail.

    Making gar balls seems to me like a lot of work to make something worse-kind of like grinding ribeyes up and making meatloaf out of them.

    Be aware, however, that gar eggs are very toxic.
