Description

Following the spring rains, Spotted Gar move up in to the shallow water areas of Lake Ray Hubbard to spawn. My son and I love to go see them. Occasionally we run into other cool critters like this Bowfin.
Iknow it's not a great picture. It was tricky holding both the camera and the net.
