Yesterday a young man came to my residence wanting his Spotted Gar weighed for a possible State Record.His name is Colton Carner of Santa Fe...15 years young. BTW my residence is a TPWD Official Weigh Station here in Galveston County. The present Spotted gar Record was caught March 31, 2005. It weighed 5.48# and 33" in length . Colton fish weighed 7.66# and was 34 3/4" long. The Award Application was filled out..and pics took...WTG Colton and good luck.
This really warms my heart when I see young folks (Boys and Girls) like Colton enjoying the Outdoors and using the Resources it has to offer.The next time you hit the water...remember to take a kid fishing. Ed
