6ft Alligator gar

Put the boat in right at dark and went looking for some flounder and reds. Fishing was slow and tide quit moving completely. Decided to head to our local night time gar hole. As soon as we pulled up we knew it was gonna be good. We saw multiple shooter fish now we were just waiting for one to screw up and role in front of us. After about 5 minutes a decent 4 footer rolled about 12yds from the boat. One of the farthest shots I've ever seen. We started trolling again headed for a spot we had just seen a big one role and sure enough she surfaced again.

the gar for the colorado is neat i have been looking to target them closer to austin(have been going to the trinity)..was going to try near smithville on the colorado just a bit upstream from where you got that one..also have a spot just 15 miles below austin i know i can get a 100 pound gar at..also been meaning to try the brazos as well as the san gabriel for them..
Guys post a heck of a fish no matter how it was taken and you are gonna **** on it? Maybe going kayak fishing offshore should be illegal since you might break a lure off and kill the fish since thats what you like to do. Sheesh, what has 2cool become.

Nice gar yall no matter if yall ate it, or used it for fertilizer.

as for mark malfa "releasing" gar that have been shot with a bow, actually it is illegal and so is killing a fish you dont eat..
you may want to reread my post before you try to jump on me
and either way i dont care, i will be doing what i can to get alligator gar protected from bowhunting in Tx during my lifetime
you call it good family fun i call it genocide on one of the neatest and oldest fish in our waters.
and guess what i want my kids kids to be able to catch them, this is why i release 99% of the fish i catch no matter where i fish and will do what i can for conservation period
i shot it, it was a monster i saw 3 or 4 more that size or better in one area, i know not everyone sees them but you just have to know how to find them and catch/shoot them. i don't shoot everyone i see, i think they are awesome but they taste like SH!t and we all know that. you go sit in the trinity and catch yours and i will keep bowfishing. no hard feelings.

i hear yah man i really wasnt trying to get on you or the OP, my fight is more against the guys like the gar guide who told me they shot 11 of them that day near palastine..unethical and illigal..eat what you kill and all that..

gonna try the colorado close to austin today or tomorrow for em, got a nice deep hole i have been seeing a few at..

They should be protected for about 20 years, since they grow so slowly. And they've lost about 80 percent of their original range.
