This was the first 7 foot alligator gar i hooked during 2016 from Malibu Mini-X kayak but wasn't the last, to be completely honest i got my butt kicked and was totally outmatched.
I have been sitting on this footage for a while and never showed it to anyone. Its truly humbling to hook something as big as your vessel in freshwater.
i have yet to catch a alligator gar over 7 foot from my kayak but its one the goals i was going for during 2016 and since it didn't happen i will focus on it until it happens during 2017.
Alligator gar are the largest freshwater predatory fish in the US they have been on the planet for 147 million years since the beginning of the cretaceous period and they are one of my favorite fish that i believe deserves the utmost protection so they can continue to thrive for another 100 million years.

147 million years? How does anyone come to that number?

Carbon dating .... and just look at that thing, you can tell it's been around for at least that long.

How do you carbon date a live animal? How is carbon dateing proven?

yah trinity river,
for future reference the oldest gar on record was 86 years old. this species has been on the planet since the beginning of the cretaceous period which started 147 million years ago.
i managed 4 gar over 6 foot from the kayak this year and had half a dozen chances at monster gar over 7 foot from the kayak without making it happen [img]https://scontent-dft4-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t...amp;oe=58B81750[/img]

Did the statement need to be made about how long this fish has been on this planet. It's certainly taking a long time to evolve.
Granted it is a sizable fish and cudos for catching it. End of argument.

i can post whatever i want, how i want, and when i want, if i want to post nothing but the history of this fish on the planet i will do so.


i have a serious interest in the living dinosaur fish that are still on the planet, gar, arapaima, sturgeon, bowfin, paddlefish, sawfish ect. how long they been on the planet and when they emerged onto the scene is important to me.
it seems like you want to have some spiritual debate that I'm not interested in having.
