    Not just gar-like, it is a gar. Exact species might be harder to specifiy, but the length of the snout suggests Longnose Gar, Lepisosteus osseus. Very common species in the US.

    Looks like what sells where I am as a needle nose gar (Lepisosteus osseus)

    Looks like a spotted florida gar to me...just young and hasn't developed its spots yet.
