Capt. Kirk Kirkland Trinity, TX Incorporated Licensed Insured

Kirklands Alligator Gar Fishing Charters offers a unique fishing experience that will have you talking about for a long time to come! Your battle with these unusual monsters is not one you will easily forget. 

This charter service is run and operated by Captain Kirk Kirkland. Capt. Kirk started fishing when he was a small child. Fishing with his father over the years has seen Capt. Kirk fall in love with Alligator Gar. Not long after, Capt. Kirk started a very successful career. Having accumulated over 100 IGFA world records for his clients, filmed over 40 shows for National Geographic, River Monsters with Jeremy Wade filming with Animal Planet, History Channel, and many more, Kirk has grown an unbeatable reputation not only among the locals, but Captains all over the globe as well. His guests travel from all around the world to go fishing with him!

Your fishing trip with Capt. Kirk will take place in Trinity, Texas. North of Houston, and east of College Station, the rivers and lakes around this area are perfect for catching massive Garfish.

Your exciting Gar fishing adventure begins once you hop aboard Capt. Kirk’s newly built 18-foot aluminum fishing boat, powered by a 250 HP Tohatsu engine. The vessel is equipped with a cooler to store your refreshing drinks, that the crew will provide during the trip. It can comfortably accommodate up to four anglers. Kids are also welcome! Full day trips with us will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, and bait. We enforce a catch and release policy.

On our trips, we will target the astonishing Alligator Gar. These creatures can grow as big as 9ft and weigh over 300 lbs. Capt. Kirk has caught 6 of them over 300lbs and even set the record for largest Gar ever caught by rod and reel at 365lbs. We catch 1-6 a year over 200lbs and see 100 pounders weekly. Catching one of these monsters will be a fighting experience of a lifetime!

Boasting a 100% success rate, Kirklands Alligator Gar Fishing Charters will not disappoint. Book now to get started on your challenge of catching those large elusive predators!
