Alligator Gar caught yesterday on the Trinity river, Texas. 7ft 5inches, 218lbs, 38inch girth. Caught on a 1lb piece of carp with a Salt Striker 8ft rod, Tidewater reel, 100lb Power Pro braid, 8/0 treble hook. I included a picture of the river to show how small and tranquil it is yet it contains such monsters. There are bigger ones there. Also included a picture of the teeth as someone on the forum had enquired about them. Not a pretty sight if the fish clamps down on your arm, leg etc. as they have tremendous jaw pressure.

Fish was released and it did swim away.

Congratulations!!!
How was the fight? You must have had a great time.
Looking at the size of the stream, did it make a long run,and did you catch it from the boat.
Sorry, too many questions,but just curiosity !!

Sydney, basically you need a boat as these fish will run with the bait either upstream or down. But landing it from shore is much easier once you have played the fish (or it has finished playing with you). For instance, this fish ran around a submerged tree so we had to take the boat to prevent entanglement. It then decided to suddenly swim under the boat so we cut the engine. Then the line caught on the transom so the fish was now pulling the boat sideways upstream. If ever there was an endorsement for Power Pro braid this was it. It then cooperatively stopped while I got the line free and we took the boat to shore. For the next 30 or so minutes I thought the line or rod would break as this fish will randomly run, roll, even tail-walk. Well, finally I managed to get it close to shore and and my friend slipped a "stretcher" (old tennis net and two bamboo poles) underneath it and drag it on to shore.
Both my friend and I are pretty active guys but at the end of this catch-weigh-measure-photograph-release episode we were aching in places I did not know existed.

(Hi MM this is a forum to dicuss about catching fish and not alligators and crocodiles)

WELL DONE. I am sure you still will be dreaming about the fight the fish put up! But tell me, what do these fish normally feed upon?

Spoonangler, yes, I use a 40 inch 180lb stainless seven-strand leader that I crimp myself to the hook and to a swivel. The PowerPro wouldn't last too long without this leader.
Regards.
