    hey chuck,
    last summer i was gigging flounder around the causeway when a boat load of bowfishermen pulled up. they had a pic. of a 6' gar they arrowed during the alligator hunt. the pic. was of him on the same scales they use to weight the gators at the game warden station.

    I've only caught two gar in my life ,both while targeting cats in Oklahoma on Kerr Res. The largest which was a gater gar ,was a little over 4' and a little thicker than 6" I guessed his weight around 20 lbs,flopped back in before I could put him on the scales .
