Alligator gars can get as big as an alligator. Huge fish, but they got lots of teeth, and you need a net because they'll bite through the line. You need to kill them right away, because they won't stay on a stringer. Either smashing its head open with a hammer, or stepping on its head. They get meaner when they spawn, though.

It looks like an Arowanna (spelling is off) There are huge fish like this in the Amazon rivers.

I should get one of those and put it in my ex-boyfriends new girlfriends pool. That'll be the end of her!
