A 7 foot, near 200 pound alligator was caught by a group of buddies fishing for striper. Even though this fish wasn’t their intended target, being able to land this fish and get the picture just might be worth more than obtaining the record.
Currently, the state record alligator gar measures out to eight feet long and weighed in at 254 pounds (115kilos).
However, many local fishermen, including, say there are a lot bigger gar that swim in those waters. The only problem with fish that big is that they are incredibly hard to reel in.
