LAKE CITY (Kiii News) - In Lake City, near Mathis, a fisherman comes face to face with a monster catch.  Brent Crawford caught the big fish while bow fishing in Lake Corpus Christi.  The alligator Gar was eight feet long and weighs in at about 250 pounds, thats just a few pounds shy of the world record of 272 pounds.  Crawford told us the gar put up a fight.  He says he didn't believe his eyes when he pulled the beast out of the water.  He says he normally catches fish about half that size.
