Man Thinks He’s Pulling Up Big Fish But Gets Face Full Of Teeth Instead

Lance Burgos was out kayaking with his daughter, Evan, at Lake Fausse Point State Park, St. Martinville, in LA. A noodle (flotation device) bobbed in the water, and naturally Lance wanted to know what was on the other end…

The noodle was intended as a catfish trap, and after tugging on the line Lance was met with a lot of resistance.

“I thought it was a big garfish,” he says. Instead he got an alligator.

“My daughter and I got back from camp, and when we went to bed, we both said, ‘We’re going to have nightmares about this,'” Burgos told Nola. Our reaction would be similar I’m sure. alligatorfishing
