Fisherman Mark David Jr. was about to throw in the towel last week on Anacoco Lake, west of Leesville, when he discovered the monster gator on one of his hooks.

“I’m no gator expert,” Davis told The Leesville Daily Leader. “We’ve caught a few gators out of Anacoco Lake before, but never this big.”

Davis said it was a struggle getting the reptile back to shore and an even bigger struggle getting the animal on his truck. It took six people in the end to get the massive gator onto Davis’ truck.
