28-06-2011 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. sami.lynn

Although only 3-3.5 ft
I've seen them in brackish rivers and freshwater lakes.

Jack Schouten has been fishing with me but has never took a fish much over 175 lbs, this was Wills first trip to Texas this fish was 211 lb. 8 ft 1 in long, caught in Lake Sam Rayburn, with me in 2001.

20-10-2004 The guy on the left is called Wil Tomey and the guy at the right is called Jacques Schouten, they are both from Holland. Actually, quit a few people have heared of this fish in Holland, especially since Jacques published about it in his book and in popular magazines.
