The man in the video below was camping and fishing at Lake Fausse Point State Park in Louisiana, when he caught something unexpected.

He was paddling around in his boat checking fishing lines, expecting to catch a catfish.

He saw one of the floaters that was attached to a line move, so he picked it up, but as he pulled in his catch, a giant alligator surfaced!

He threw the floater back into the water and got away as quickly as possible!
