Fishing with shad off the bottom at lake Livingston.

Rod starts screaming. Thinking I have a lake record catfish...... then busting out of the water is.....





No one is real excited about swimming tomorrow.

Yea I'd be hard pressed to get too excited if I pulled that in off our dock. I have my kids and nieces convinced that gar don't swim near docks in the daylight only at night.

If I pulled that monster in during daylight they may never get in the water again.

Wait till people find out Livingston has many alligators in it.
Gars, even the biggest, consider humans threatening and move off if people are in the water.

Did you eat it? Hard to clean, but very good.

Nice catch! If you kept it I hope it was under 48".

Uhh, I don't think that's going to be a problem.

You'll never have to worry about alligator gar while swimming. They have no interest in being anywhere near people of any size.

We used to hunt gar in the Brazos, they leave as soon as the sense a human around. We did have one issue where instead of an AK or shotgun to kill them quickly someone brought a .22lr. After getting hit with the bow from bow hunting and then several .22lr rounds those things get pissed pretty quick, think the guy had to get like 22 stitches. Not a very bright dude

I hope that isn't the best picture you took of you and the kid with the fish. That is a moment you put up on the wedding rehearsal slideshow, but not that pic.

It went back. No way was I prepared to clean something like that.

Obviously I am not worried about swimming out there, but I was sitting there kind of wondering when someone was going to put it together.

My sister in law stopped half way through the ordeal and was like wait, we are swimming with these things..

We did catch some catfish too.
