Those are some nice gar.
Thanks for the pics. First time I've seen a black one!

That is the first black gar I have ever seen. It sure makes them teeth alot less pleasent to look at.
That is the first black I have seen. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
Although I'm not a gar expert, that looks like a small alligator gar to me.
At first i thought u were going to show a picture of a melanistic fish, but it looks more or less that its just a darker then normal gar. Could be from living in a darker habitat, something odd about its diet, or even though i don't think so it could actually be melanistic. More then likely its a combination of the first two.
Just my $0.02
I've never seen one that dark. Does make'em look alot meaner don't it ? Thanks for the pic.
do you use that will set into that toothy mug?
Hey check out that Smile on that Dude thanks for shareing
Pretty cool. I hever saw one that color.
Actually the Black Phase of a gar is sort of like an albino/golden rainbow or a all white channel cat, its not a true albino but a, 1 in a thousand color scheme that happens even in the wild, more are caught because the black phase is less obvious to predators then say a true albino. If you look at pet shops, they sometimes get "black " gar and they fetch a high price for the mere oddity of them. More then likely it was a Long Nose but from the Gar research I have done over the years it is also prevelent in Aligators and Shornose. Way cool catch and if you get another one, small enough,kept alive, I bet he would go for a pretty penny to a well heeled aquarium type.
I wonder if you could tan there hide and make a butt wrap out of it? Neat fish...:wink:
That thing is ugly oooh:
that looks really cool!
Never saw a black gar
I hate catching them things. good fight though
thats just a typical florida black alligator gar. we catch them like that all the time down here.
