Description

Gar was seen on a creek overflowing across a road as it flopped to get to the other side. I did not get a good look at it, but not sure what else it would be unless another type of gar.

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.
