Just another perfect day fishing for one of the worlds oldest fish species in the heart of Texas on the trinity river.
We caught half a dozen all around 5-6 foot on rod and reel treating each one with the respect they deserve.
We had 2 chances at monster gar over 7 foot but didn't make it happen today, sometimes its about the journey and the time on the water and how you spend it.
This trip was one of my favorites in a while its great that alligator gar are being put into the spotlight on YouTube and elsewhere.
Alligator gar have been on the planet for over 100 million years they are pretty much the perfect fish species they can live in fresh and salt water, can survive in extremely low oxygen content water by using a primitive lung to breath.
They primarily feed on roughfish, carp, buffalo, perch, talapia, native suckers and seem to have a taste for non native species such at talapia and common carp. they promote healthy water ways by playing the role as a top level predators reducing the number of sick, weak, and unhealthy genes from the prey species populous.
