WOW, how in earth did you land that monster by yourself Clayton? I bet you really had your hands full. Congratulations. You certainly deserve all the kudos we can offer. By the way, I just can't understand how you and that pretty young lady are related. grin

Nice fish, congrats on the record! At 38.9lb she's still little for a gator gar, I'll bet you'll break it soon enough!

Just took a look at the record page and found a 150lb gator gar that was bowed (unfortunately) just last year, so they're definitely in there!

Thanks PL and gitter done I was by myself getting it out of the water was fairly easy but getting it up the 20' cliff bank was real tough thank goodness for the old flood control cables that where hanging out of the bank I threw a bowlin loop in the end of my tie rope put it around my waist and started accending
