    I wonder if it was a Pike or just someone clueless that thought a Gar was a Pike

    It was a Nothern Pike. Back in the day when the American Angler was in business they had the fish hanging on the wall.

    Re: Exotic fish in Lady Bird Lake (Town Lake)

    I read somewhere that they introduced pike and stergon in to town lake back in the 70's or 80's as another type of sport fish to promote fishing in texas, but it went on to say that most of them didnt survive.

    but that would be crazy to catch one monster one that did make and has just been lurking all this time.

    I know that TPWD also stocked Walleye and Redfish in Town Lake, too...However, no one ever reported catching a lake record... ;D

    TPWD has used Town Lake as a dumping ground/ experimental fishery for years. There are species of fish in there not mentioned yet.

    Northerns like hanging out behind the Statesman building. Caught a few from there. My buddy thought he had a good one on (bass) and pulled out a 20" jack.
    "Lip land him", I said. ;D

    And a 2.5lb walleye from Travis in Sandy.
