Texas teen catches 7ft, 190-pound Alligator gar

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.
