Default Rod and real gar congratulations.

I thought I would share a good fishing story. I’m glad they chose to celebrate the catch with a feast.
Good fish young man!


Pytel, 17, and his friends caught in Fort Bend County a 7-foot, 7-inch alligator gar, weighing 190 pounds with a rod and reel. Using chicken liver as his bait, he knew from the start that he was catching something bigger.
“I called out my buddies to help out by catching the gar,” he said. “I didn’t realize what it was until after a half-hour later it jumped out of the water.”


“My friend’s girlfriend took the gar with us and we cooked it,” Pytel said, “their meat is pretty tasty.”
