Fish Story

Down in Willacoochee, Nashville resident Chad Leonard landed a state record gar.

The record did not come easy. Leonard fought the fish for an hour, shot it twice, then drove around with the creature for hours before weighing it. When he did, the Nashville resident discovered he’s the new Georgia title holder for catching a Lepisosteus osseus.
If this seems excessively violent, you've never met a gar. These fish are like relics from the Jurassic era.
