  alligator gar
by tompt

As Louisina has much water (coast, Mississippi river, ans swampa) there are lots of places you can go fishing.
The fish in the picture is an alligator gar. It was caught in a levee after a flooding of the Mississippi river near Angola prison. As it was not caught with a rod it is not officially the second largest alligator gar ever caught.

Alligator gar are called trash fish, meaning they are not good for sport, they are not good to eat, and they eat other fish.
