Jakob Hals and his crew headed down to the Trinity river in Texas to fish Alligator Gar, and what they caught was a prehistoric monster. The fish was over 7.5-feet long, and weighed over 200-pounds (90″ long x 40″ girth).

Check out their amazing video:

 

“This fish was the true river monster we came down to Texas to catch and we happened to get it on our second day of the trip, just unreal,” Hals wrote. “This monster taped in at 90×40 inches, which is 7 ½ feet long and over 200 pounds of pure armor plate,” Hals continued. “Wouldn’t ya know we left all the video gear and expensive cameras in the truck; this seems to be when you always catch a fish of a lifetime.”

” This fish was the true river monster we came down to Texas to catch and we happened to get it on our second day of the trip, just unreal. Luckily, a group of fisherman on the shore were gracious enough to snap a picture for us. I think they were as much in awe as we were. It took all of us to hoist this beast into the air for the quick photo op. Thanks again, guys. The photo turned out great!”
