Ugly fish in a good sort of way.... ;D. No skinny dipping in those waters!  :unsure:
     One more with the one we're after and we'll have two.

Long-nose gar actually. I caught one while bullhead fishing last year. It had it's jaws clamped down on my line only, no hook in it's mouth. strangest catch ever.

Actually, I thought the first picture was a long nose gar. In any event, I won't argue with anybody who has caught more than me. ;D
