A father and son from Alabama caught a massive alligator gar on Thanksgiving, and the pair only recently learned that their holiday catch broke the state’s fishing record.
Keith Dees and his son, Huntley, reeled in a 162-pound alligator gar from the Mobile-Tensaw Delta, the Yellowhammer State’s largest river delta and wetland, according to the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR).
In a press release issued on Thursday, Jan. 19, the ADCNR announced the pair’s alligator gar broke the state fishing record by 11 pounds.
