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.
