Plesiosaurs and Gars

As Scott Mardis  mentioned, Canadian Post-Cretaceous freshwater plesiosaur fossils have been found in the same deposits as those of gars and bowfins (He has the pdf on file)

Scott posted this picture as "Meanwhile in Lake Champlain" saying that it could just as easily represent conditions in Lake Champlain now. The illustration was intended to show a Mesozoic Plesiosaur.

My comment was "Those garfish look eminently swallowable" and on his separate posting about the fossil association "I would take that as a strong indicator for a predator-prey relationship"
