I was at my grandparents ranch with my friend earlier today, and we were shooting snakes and turtles out by the river. When we decided to fish (we found fishing supplies on the river bank), we used the dead snakes and turtles as bait. After about 30 minutes we get a nibble. Then we realize this is a big ass fish nibbling on by dead snake. We get it pulled up to where we can see it and it looks like an alligator for a second. We look closer and it has that fin on its back and fins on its side. We lose it, being that we were using a really strong stick and fishing wire we found on the river bank.
Jesus Christ this thing was scary as shit.
Next weekend we are gonna go back and shoot it, and we are pissed as hell that we didn't shoot it before.
Just googled an alligator fish texas and found out its an alligator gar.
Just also learned that they can survive on land. Conveniently an episode of River Monsters is on the tv talking about alligator gars. lulz
Here's a pic of one
