seeing these pictures and reference to numerous alligator being caught makes me wonder if anyone knows there is a limit of 1 per person in Texas these days. The wanton killing has made the alligator gar fairly scarce in same rivers/lakes. Just saying

If it was referenced to me. I catch about one a month or one every other month. I don't keep more than I am able to eat within a months time. They say they are scarce but there are tons of them everywhere!! Stop reading newspaper articles they are all lies. Ill take a video of next time I go out and you can see how many monsters are out there.

Gar

No reference to anyone. Only stating the current law concerning alligator gar. I live on Galveston bay and have fished them for years. Only recently the GWs have started checking us at night.

BTW I don't read news papers. To dang depressing.

Gar

The law is the law on bag limits now, down here we have an overabundance of gar, spotted and alligator gar. They are in the resacas, canals and even monsters in the arroyo, which is salt water. These creatures are prehistoric almost and will always be in the valley water systems for generations to come.

I think the law only pertains to alligator gar and not the rest. One of these days I plan on hooking up with David and getting one.

David, I like the bote-reel on your bow...

Was out fishing for trout and this far comes out of nowhere and is just cruising under the lights. Run to the truck and get the bow and let her have it. I wanna say around a five footer.

Do you go over to the other sections and tell them "wonder if anyone knows there is a limit of 3 per person in Texas these day." on redfish? We know the laws, just like you. Oh, and it's 1 per person per day and we still can't kill em all, so go troll somewhere else.

Mango I sent you a pm with my number. But to answer your question 70-90 is prime time in the spring after these fronts. Very hot early summer months bring the big ones out to play. The females are usually the huge ones and they usually have smaller males around them. If you can hold off on the smaller males you can nail one of the big females. Usually I shoot at the first ones I track if I need some meat in the fridge.
