Shocked fisherman Peyton Moore, known from a channel dedicated to fishing, which he maintains on Youtube, the realization that in his bait is not just any big fish but a huge alligator fish.
According to Moore, it is the largest such fish ever filmed live in North America, but this is not an official record, according to the New York Post.
“When you see me next to this giant fish, it’s a little easier to believe it was so big,” he said.
Fishing is an occupation that the 32-year-old man from Sugar Land, Texas, a suburb of Houston, does from time to time growing up. He became passionate when he started thinking of ways to expand his career.
Admiring the work of Animal Planet fisherman Jeremy Wade in “River Monsters”, Moore began learning how to fish more efficiently and then started his own YouTube channel. Four years ago, he developed into fishing and thus makes a full living from it.
“I definitely went out with that in mind to catch a big fish, but I was surprised by what came to my bait,” he commented.
In any case, the alligator in the video does not appear to have been injured and was later released.
