Description

One individual found while electro shocking the water. It was in a three foot deep hole in a stream and under a cut in the bank. It was easily caught with a net and put on shore, where it flopped back towards the water. It remained alive out of the water for as long as fifteen minutes. It was 80 degrees and sunny.

Description

A very large individual underneath a highway in rural Texas. Someone had caught it and kept it on the shore to die, since it predates fish. The water wasn't wonderful quality and there were not many fish to be found. The weather was in the 60-70 range and it was sunny; we found it awhile after it was caught, though.

Description

Time: 3:23 pm
Weather conditions: 72 degreed Fahrenheit, overcast with a little wind

Description: long mouth with sharp teeth, slender and spotted body with multiple fins, hard armored skin/scales, body was grey with medium sized brown spots mainly toward its rear and fins.

A single longnose gar had been caught using fishing nets at the creek and placed in a bucket. By the end of the trip, 2 other gars of the same species had been caught. They resided in deeper waters of the murky creek. About one and a half feet in length. Its teeth kept getting caught on the net, making it easier to catch. They also tended to stay close to the surface of the water even after being caught. Did not act aggressive towards other fish placed within the same bucket

I think this is an Alligator Gar and not Spotted Gar. In any event as I drove by two fisherman they were in the process of dispatching this 3 foot gar they caught to take home for supper.

Description

My friends and I crossed a busy intersection of the residential area where the jogging trail continued around 2:09PM (77 degrees F and quite humid), and walking down the side of the flood control/drainage ditch to the small creek that is separated from the lake that is part of Westlake Residential, we spotted this gar swimming slowly through the slow moving creek (although there were areas of more rapid moving water where the plant life created a bottleneck). The gar is fairly small for what its species is know for, a little over a foot and a half long, and there was an even smaller one downstream of it by a couple of feet (but I did not identify or take a picture of it) that was pointed out by one of my friend. The black spots were mostly focused along the sides of the fish, and were more concentrated closer to the caudal fin. This particular gar liked to swim close to the denser patches of vegetation, and seemed to stay fixed to the particular spot shown in the photo; however, when we returned about 30 minutes later with a net to try and capture it to get a better identification, we were not able to find it again (or its companion) along the 40 ft stretch starting from the drainage holes by Fite Road.
