A friend at work gave me a picture of an alligator gar that was supposedly caught in the Tennessee River. It was an e-mail sent over the internet.(This IS NOT a needle nose gar). It said it weighed 215 pounds!!!!! Personally I think it is a hoax.. This (supposedly) took place back in May.. I work for the Huntsville Tmes and I do not recall seeing this story or any other story in the paper pertaining to this gar.. I thought alligator gar hang out in the brackish water of Alabama and the Missippi Delta. Has anyone heard of alligator gar being caught in the Tennessee River system??? NOT ME ..... Louis T.
