|wow... that is a big one... i have an alligator gar as a pet, he is just small though and is around 12 inches long. im gonna upgrade his tank up to a 150 gallon soon so he will grow faster. i hope he would get that big someday but i have no room to fit a tank that would contain something that big. we caught him fish from the creek behind my house to eat. i feel safer feeding him wild caught fish than pet store feeder fish.
|They are also in North and South Carolina.
Although only 3-3.5 ft
I've seen them in brackish rivers and freshwater lakes.
|Good evening Capt. Kirk. My buddy and i have been checking out the gar for a while now and decided to take a june trip to try to get a very large one. we where hoping you could send us as much info as possible about the fish and also trip info and prices. thanks!
|hi where in spain did you catch this beautiful pike ?
|Hello Jase! Remember me ? Dan & Pete, we fished with you a while ago now. Had a brilliant day thanks for that mate, shame you never rang us though we was looking forwards to fishing with you again. Take care mate all the best!

|In the input form the weight is in KG without decimals. In the very beginning this site was ment only for wels catfishfishing and decimals were useless. Sorry for this. As the weight of your carp was 27.5lbs, in KG it shoud be 27,5 * 2,2046215 = 12,47379652.

It seems that carps do appreciate this dog food too...
