Got done working cows early last week and hit the river used whole bluegill with the tail cut off and a fillet style slit cut on one side 3 runs one gar river was up and dirty fished sand bar adjacent to a 30ft deep hole the gator gar and longnose we're everywhere also it amazed me how diffrent the gator gar runs are compared to longnose longnose in my exp grab you bait a haul but then stop the gator gar seemed more like a turtle run take 5,10' of line then stop then a little more then stop until I reeled up thought it was another softshell until it leaped out of the water fish was 38.9 lbs 54" long with a 22" girth fish was ate by my Me my wife and kids wasn't going to kill it just for a record alone

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!

New to angling. Catch and release. The dream - to catch at least one of every species in our great state (if I can manage to resist carp)!

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
