lasso, catch, and release Angler Payton Moore recently achieved just that with an 8-foot alligator gar.

"It felt like someone's car had just started up and was rolling out of the driveway, and I'm hanging on to the end of it." 

He was putting the brakes on the beast with a Piscifun Salis X Reel. 

 They're powerful. They're quite substantial. And they immediately offer you everything they have."

The hook-up took place near Houston in an unnamed Texas backwater bayou. 

Moore won't reveal where, but he does show the complete series of events in a video on his YouTube channel.
