3.2 lb. Alligator Gar caught by Chris DeMartine fishing in Florida on 12/22/00
23.0" / 3.2 lb. Alligator Gar caught by Chris DeMartine fishing on Friday December 22, 2000 at 14:45 near Nokomis in Sarasota County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a Small Aberdeen Hook Baited With A Strip of Sunfish a Baitfish

This thing looked prehistoric. I was afraid to pick it up, so I measured it and kicked it back in the lake. I may never catch one of these again since I mostly use artificial lures for bass in the lake, so I figured it's worth posting. The picture is obviously not the fish -- but the closest thing I could find from the local lakes -- as you can see, I got very close to him or her (would you want to try to find out?).

good catch Chris.
Ya'll need to read the comment that goes with the pic and stats.
A 23" alligator gar is a bait fish compared to the 7'+ 170lb+ gator gar that come out of east tx.
if you are not familiar with the alligator gag, google the gar guys and look at the big boys(not a plug.). these are probably the most least-known sport fish in the country.
