Last year I pulled in a 6' 8" alligator gar on 6# test. Little shakespear spinning combo I bought at academy with the pre-spooled line still in it. I was just messin around on the lavaca river with cut shad for catfish and my bobber disappeared. 45 min. later we hauled him up the bank! Fun trip!

A 42 inch jack should weigh anywhere from 23-28lbs depending on girth. Great catch! My 2 favorite light line catches are a 100lb blacktip on 20, and a 30lb 11 oz snook on 10.

Personal best 30 inch King Salmon on 6lb flourocarbon, 39 inch King Salmon on 10lb mono, and 42 inch Bull Red on 15lb braid. Using a 9 1/2 foot St. Croix Legend steelhead rod and a 12 foot browning steelhead rod. It is all I have. If you guys see someone flounder fishing with a 12 foot rod, say hello. I am sure that I will be the only one doing so.

Nice catch. It is always nice to catch a big one on light tackle. Your story got me thinking about some of mine. I was bringing our boat around from Cancun back to Progreso several years ago and caught a sailfish on 6 pound test that should have weighed 68 pounds based on his length and we released him. It took 17 minutes to catch him and I got it on video but no photos. In 1973, I had a blue marlin of about 400 pounds on 30 pound test for 5 hours and 45 minutes fishing off of Destin in our 22 foot Mako. I had him to the boat about 12 times but I had no one experienced aboard to gaff him. After about 3 hours, my crew hit him in the gill plate with the curve of the flying gaff and he sounded. I gave the rod up and said you wind him in and I will gaff him. They were unable to get him to the boat again and we were running out of fuel. So I hand lined him and turned him and he came to the surface to fight. After about 20 minutes on top, my wireman/novice got the leader and had told him to go to the other side of the boat with it to break him off or if I could I would gaff him. Anyway, the fish jumped I tried to gaff him but he was too quick for me and the gaff hook went around his tail and pulled tight. He was gone with a broken leader and unhooked or uninjured by the gaff and so we got a release. We were so happy to see him go. We made it back to Destin with 2 gallons of fuel.
