Probably gar. Or bowfin. Got any gators in there? Maybe small gators too.

That's called fin rot from spawning. They fan the beds pretty hard and doing so it rub it's raw opening their tail area for infection. That fish should be healthy in a few weeks pending it was released back to continue life.

Dang nice fish regardless! Private water? And I have caught some spawning bass through the years that had some pretty worn down/bloody tails but that second pic sure looks chomped on!

Looks like Palestine.


A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

Not saying you did it or if that’s what it even is..... but looks like a bad snag mark to me. 2nd one, no idea.

I think a turtle is too slow. Gators won't chase fish very much even as they're lazy, not that Texas has a lot of gators. My vote goes to alligator gar.

I had to trim that tail a couple of weeks ago so it wouldn't be in the slot...……...
