Fishing Rules for Alligator Gar

A new rule for alligator gar will go into effect on September 1st, 2009.


The rule states only one alligator of any size can be taken by anglers or bow-fishers. “Proper management of alligator gar is the key to providing the opportunity of landing a trophy alligator gar fish for future anglers.” Remarked one official from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

It makes me wonder though, could this new rule cause the alligator gar population to get out of control? I’m sure a lot of anglers are not going to like this rule very much.
