Description

One of three large longnose gar seen around 30 feet from the falls at Dolan Falls on the Devil's River. Had a very long nose, although the body was yellow with black spots throughout and was initially identified as a spotted gar. However, Chad identified it as a longnose gar due distribution of the species.
