Every so often I like to make a slide show of recent screenshots and thought I would put together one from my recent Fall fishing trips from October and early November.....I'm a nerd a know : )

Heres several screenshots of hybrids suspended as well as several where they were bottom hugging. Also got into a serious school of gar the last few trips and shared a few of those screenshots.

Anyways, check it out if interested and looking for a refresher on what you should be looking for while hybrid fishing. Deadsticking is already starting to be a good approach as well as using live shad.

Nice video. I assume this is FPH screen shots. Thanks for doing the work of putting this together. Good job.

Not sure. FPH is only 4,000 acres according to TPWD so fairly small lake compared to most lakes so I imagine is cools off and heats up faster than a lot of other lakes. It’s also very dirty water which I’ve heard that makes things happen quicker as well

From lots of experience and trial and error.

In the summer I came across the same returns in a cove and thought, man those look so different from what I have learned the hybrids look like but let’s give it a go as I have done a few times in the past. So as I stopped and fished I noticed 2-4 foot long nose gar hit the surface all around me as has happen on previous attempts when I saw the same returns. It then clicked in my mind that those returns are gar and hence why I never catch hybrids when I see those returns.

If you notice on SI, their return is very hot, glowing/has a blur around the signal much different then the hybrids. From my experience that is characteristic of gar and knowing that it saves me a lot of wasted time. I believe their extremely tough scales just makes a super hot signal unlike any other fish.

I have see very similar solar returns on schools of long nose gar on Belton. I would find them schooling in the same area day after day. I lost a lot of bait trying to catch them at first, thinking they were hybrids. I added a little frayed rope to the hook and verified that it was gar. Now I avoid the area when I see returns like these.
