    I caught my first gar last fri. While catfishing wasn't much fight to him but still fun to catch. He wasn't as big as these guys though and his bill wasn't as wide maybe a different breed. Nice pics thanx for sharing.

    those alligator gar in those pics were in the 50-100lb class you can still catch these type of gar in the 200-300lb class and maybe bigger once you hook one of 100 or so you will love catching them and they will wear you plumb out lol

    Hey catman those sre some nice gators. If you've never caught a gator gar you are missing out. They fight like no other fish. Did you catch them on these on the Trinity? We fish the Red River. Once you catch one you will have a great appreciation for the a gar. Thanks for the pics.
