Gar, Spotted Gunnar

Species: 
Gar, Spotted
Location: 
Illinois
Date Caught: 
Saturday, July 12, 2014
Notes: 
100 yards and 10.5 months from where I caught my lifer alligator gar. With this fish, I've caught all 5 US gar species and need to find a way to get to the Cuban gar and tropical gar. First photo shows spots. Second one shows size (incredibly skinny) and coloration (very dark compared to all other gars I've caught outside the Everglades). Third photo added in 2017 so I'd have one on here with clear, correct-looking spots.
