    I dunno, probably about 4 1/2 to 5ft. I usually don't weigh any of my fish so I don't know what it weighed.

    well I really have no idea on its weight but she was well over 6' long, nose to tail, thats how I "BROKE" my wife into running of a drag on a big fish....:wink: this time of year in the Kasky river they are hard NOT to catch! this one is well over 6' and girth is prolly 18-20".

    We don't have the giant alligator gar here, but the record for the state longnose is 19lb 10.5oz. the other night I thought I had that beat, but the fish only weighed 15.25 lbs. I have never eaten one, we only catch them while we are after catfish so we just throw them back. I will submit a photo when I get home.
