“To get one of those exotic species — I prayed for that for 10 years,” Wade La Fontaine said of his mahi mahi catch.

“It broke the existing Texas state record. It broke the water body record. It broke the International Game Fish Association all-tackle world record. And it broke the 6-pound line class record,” fisherman Kirk Kirkland said of his alligator gar trophy.
