    Who fishes for Alligator Gar, what gear do you use to battle these big brutes?

    For the record, I have never CAUGHT an aligator gar, but I have chased them in the Texas. Knowing how big they get, I wasn't particularly shocked when the guide busted out some serious meat sticks. We used Shimano Tallus rods rated for 30 to 50 pound line and Shimano TLD 20 lever-drag reels...stuff I'd use offshore. Long wire leaders, whole menhaden on giant circle hooks and 5 hours of roasting in the sun led to one run-off, but it was fun to dream. One day I'll have my vengeance.

              Court reversed abortion, back to the States where it should have been in the first place. Let them vote on it.
