There is an Alligator Gar in Amon Carter Lake here in Bowie, Texas that is as long as my ot sport canoe (14'). I ran right over him on a catfishing trip. He looks like a log at first glance. I hit him with my oars Cause he nearly turned my over. The only way to get him would be with a bow. The easiest way to get Gars is to bow fish them. I would suggest from a pontoon or flat raft for your first time.
