did it's head look like -< instead of the regular sideways U shape of a head of a fish (top view)? It would be most likely a Longnose you did see if it was a gar (although it could have been a spotted or a shortnose), since they have a long "snout"
It had a leopard-spotted back and fins, a long snout filled with sharp teeth, and it moved really fast at its prey.

really? gar here like mid-morning through mid afternoon
And you have Longnosed....
They are regularly seen and active as stated early morning and Late afternoon (And Late night on Moonless days) near shore and often seen lounging visibly in open waters at other times. They tend to be a rather visible species all around on open waters. Does not mean this is the best time to catch them or sample them with typically available tools. Most mid morning and Mid afternoon behavior is just laying around or basking. These fish are very difficult to approach when laying around in mid day.
Granted if you have some electroshocking equipment you can nab up a bunch of them but if you try seining, dipnetting or angling you have a challenge on your hands.
