Bill Valverde’s World Record Alligator Gar

I posted about the world record alligator gar sometime ago, but was unable to locate a photo of the enormous fish. Luckily one of our readers knew just were to find one

Without further ado, here is a photo of the late, great Bill Valverde’s world record 279 pound alligator gar caught in 1951.

    My uncle is Bill Valverde and we have an old pic of him and my grandfather with the gar. I’ll get it scanned and emailed to you if you would like. I’m kinda shocked no one in the family has contributed the photo anywhere on the to be seen on the net.


Thanks Dan!
