NEEDVILLE, TX (KTRK) — A Texas teen has quite the fish tale!
Jack Pytel shared photos of his big catch – a 190-pound, 7’5″ alligator gar.
He said he was in a creek near the Brazos River on Feb. 1 when he hooked the giant fish.
Thirty minutes later, he hauled it in.
Pytel said he usually releases his catches, but he gave this one to a friend’s father.
It seems the alligator gar likes to put up a fight.
In Anahuac, two fishermen shared that they got a workout pulling in a 172-pound alligator gar on the end of a fishing line.
