On this 8-hour trip you'll be venturing into the Trinity River between Houston and Dallas to target the massive, prehistoric-looking Alligator Gar! These beasts are one of the most distinctive looking fish you can find, with a needle-like head that looks like an alligator's and the body of a fish. Expect to use a classic rod and reel with live bait, cut bait, or artificial lure to get these to bite.
