TX Lake Corpus Christi
Marker Description: Brent Crawford arrowed a huge alligator gar in June of 2012. His scale capped out at 300 pounds and he filleted the fish before obtaining the official weight. (The largest recorded alligator gar caught in Texas while bow-fishing is 365 pounds/ rod and reel - 279 pounds.)

Crawford saw several giant gar in a wide canal feeding into the lake, after striking the fish, the nylon cord wrapped around Crawford's feet, he tried to unwind the rope and it caught on his hand and
pulled him headfirst in the water. His dog bit down on his pant cuff to help him right himself. 45 minutes later and a final gunshot ended the battle.
