Monster alligator caught on Lake Marion


Alligator hunting season is in full swing in South Carolina with a Senaca man nabbing a huge beast on Lake Marion.

It weighed in at a remarkable 756 lbs and measured 12 feet in length.

Jordan Patrick from Tale & Scale Outfitters says they used a crossbow to harpoon the gator before dragging him to a sandbar and loading him up on the boat.

He says it took about 30 minutes. They're planning to have it stuffed and mounted.
