Record Gar Reeled in by Ardmore Man

Alligator Gar

3-20-06 - An Ardmore man reeled in one for the record books in February. Sean Chatham reeled for over 35 minutes to bring in a 184 lb alligator gar to shore from the Red River in Love County.

The gar measured in at 7’8 and had more than a 3-foot girth. Oklahoma Wildlife biologists say it is a state record beating out a 180 lb gar caught from the Red River back in 2002.
