You Might Think Twice About Wading In Arkansas

Paisley found this great photo and story on the Arkansas Game & Fish website. It shows a 230LB Alligator Gar caught on the White River back in 1956 by Johnnie M. Gray. The fish was 6 feet 8 inches long and was caught on a deep sea rod with raw fish for bait. The fish took 2 hours to land. According to the AG&F website Mr. Gray, a professional photographer by trade, had the print made up into postcards which he later sold. Looking down and seeing something like this swimming by my knee caps might make me think twice about wading into the deeper holes. (photo courtesy Arkansas Game & Fish)
