Lance Burgos was kayaking at Lake Fausse Point in St Martinville this past Saturday with his young passenger when they happened upon some catfish noodles. Burgos figured he'd check to see if anything was on the line, and boy was there, and it definitely was not catfish!

Watch as Burgos floats up to the noodles and starts to pull up the line. All of a sudden he realizes what he has just pulled up is not a garfish or catfish, but a massive alligator and it's right at the edge of his kayak.

See what I found on a noodle near our campsite. It wasn't what I expected. Kayaking and camping at Lake Fausse Point State Park, St. Martinville, La., will never be the same. Shot with GoPro Hero 3 on the afternoon of April 9, 2016, near Pack or Paddle Site 5.

Honestly, my stomach flipped a little bit when I watched this. So glad Lance and his kid got away from the situation safely.
