A Louisiana man was looking to spend some quality time on the lake fishing with his daughter earlier this week, but the pair ended up catching a little more than catfish.

After setting up camp at Lake Fausse Point State Mark in Martinville, Louisiana, the father and daughter duo set out in their kayak searching for catfish.  As his daughter filmed the event using a GoPro, her father Lance Burgos reminded her to “be careful” just as he was about to lift up his line.

When he did, the mouth of a large alligator greeted him, as he yelled, “oh my God!”

“I thought we were gonna pick up that line and see a little fish,” the dad told Inside Edition. “And lo and behold, we had an encounter that we’ll probably never forget,” he said.

No kidding, Lance.
