Video: Kayaker and young daughter reel in huge gator while fishing, freak out

There are some massive catfish out there, but when Lance Burgos tugged on his line on Saturday and felt a heavy tug, he was cautious.

"Be careful," he tells his daughter, who is also in the boat as she reaches down towards the water to assist him.

Instead of hooking a fish, however, Burgos actually caught a massive alligator.

"Oh my god! That's a big ass gator," Burgos exclaims, as he tosses the line back in the water and pedals his boat as fast as he can out of there.

Watch the scary moment:
