I have no idea how this incredible fish flew under the radar, but here it is in all its glory! This massive alligator gar was caught in May 2009 and is potentially the new world record caught with a bow and arrow.
This alligator gar was 8 foot, 3 inches long and weighed 230lbs! Caught by Johnny Morris of Bass Pro Shops
Caught while fishing with the Garzilla Guide Service.
I’ve been reading up on gar fishing for my trip to Georgia this weekend. I saw so many of these unusual fish and had no luck enticing one to bite. For my next visit to Thurmond Lake I will be armed with knowledge and some new nylon lures. If I’m lucky I’ll catch a few, if I’m really luck maybe I’ll come across one of these golden gar. How bout one of these beauties for your aquarium Mark?
