According to a story on TCPalm.com, a 19-year-old Florida man made the catch of a lifetime with his fishing pole last Friday -- an 800-pound alligator.

The gator measured in at 12 feet, 3 inches long, according to the story. The teen's father, who is a taxidermist, plans on mounting the gator's head for his sun.
