That is an alligator gar of course. I heard you can catch one on a piece of yellow rope tied to the end of your line. The rope gets tangled in their teeth and you reel it in.

Yeah, guys fish for 'em when they swim into the tribs of Lake Ontario in the summer. But not the Alligator gar - the longnose gar (similar, but smaller and with a longer snout/teeth).

Ya gotta be SICK to go after this prehistoric monster!
