Landing my new personal best alligator gar at an undisclosed location know affectionately as location X. it measured 7 foot 2 inches and had a 41 inch girth and weighed over 200 pounds. my 7 year old daughter Allyse filmed everything you see, also unfortunately my iphone died as i pulled the gar out of the water but we got most of the fight on video. This Monster gar ate a pretty small chunk of gizzard shad fished on bottom and went about spooling my rod i had in a rod holder on the bank extremely fast we only had time to grab the rod and jump in the boat before i had no line left and the gar drug us downriver with no line on the reel..all my gar are released unharmed you will not see me kill one i am passionate about protecting these awesome sportfish that have survived for 100,000,000 years

Man nice job! That thing was pulling you all over. great camera work by the little lady. that is cool. I agree fully with the release of the fish unharmed, especially when they are that big. Irratates the hell out of me when people talk about killing them just to kill them cause they are trash fish. I loved catching them and my neighbor knew how to cook them so was win win for us. Havnt eating one in a long time though just would catch and release.

Great catch.

I am not able to see the vids as of right now but congrats. A fish that size is amazing to catch. I myself have caught one just a tad bit smaller than that so I know. Anyhow, how are you guys getting weights for these fish. What kind of scales do you use and how do you go about weighing it? Thanks...
