    a guy came up to me at work the other day that i go fishing with every once in a while and told me he heard a story about an alligator gar that was so big the guys that were bringing the gar in shot the fish with a 22. and a 45. just to get it to the boat. I've looked all over the internet for this story and couldn't find squat. I did find however when i type in alligator gar in yahoo images a picture on www.flikr.com of a huge alligator gar with what look like some bullet holes. Does anyone know anything about this or was the guy just pulling my chain

    Hey David look up backwaterbowfishing dot com, it shows the exact same picture of the guy w/his name & where he shot it( he didnt catch it, he shot w/a bow, but still a huge gar though, there are alot of them on that site)
