When He Saw What Was In The Water, He Swore Off Fishing For Good!


Instead of catching white tarpons, the man caught one of Florida’s most dangerous beasts. This beast then chased and tried to attack him.

What will you do if you were in his situation? I will surely run as fast as I can to get away from this beast.

Tommy Lee, a 22-year -old resident of Florida caught a big surprise when an enormous monster came out of the water attached to the other end of his fishing rod.

Rather than catching white tarpon as he expected, Lee lured one of Florida’s most threatening beasts. Within moments of attaching the critter, a big alligator blast through the surface of the water and started chasing and attacking him.

The beast first appears around the 20-second mark in the video uploaded to YouTube. Initially, the alligator looks just like a log drifting in the water, but when it begins to move, Lee realizes that he is at serious risk. He then starts to run off, running back toward the mainland. Unfortunately, the alligator has another game plan.

You will see that the alligator pursued the man back ashore and is eyeing him for lunch at the 50-second mark in the video.  While for the rest of the video, Lee toys with the beast, which sets his heart racing as it tries to track him down. But around 1:30-the second mark, the beast decides no longer to pursue its supposed lunch and turns around back to the water.

It didn’t stop there; Lee continues to provoke the beast. He yells at it trying to get it to look back in his direction. Throughout the uploaded video, it can be heard that Lee breaths heavily as he tries to settle down from the terror the predator gave him.

In the video, you will hear a splashing sound as the beast returns to the lake. When Lee knows that the gator is gone, he admits that he is getting out of there since he no longer wants to risk his life around one of Florida’s most dangerous creatures.

Thousands of netizens shared comments about the viral video on YouTube. The following is a selection of comments from viewers around the globe.

Here are some of the comments folks said online:

“And then the second gator appears at your side. ‘Clever girl.’”

“Why the hell would you even go the direction of that gator after he came ashore? I’m glad you are ok. I hope you are never in a horror movie.”

“This guy is crazy. I would have been terrified, and he’s going back and looking at it and saying ‘hey buddy.’”

“And I thought people only tripped and fell down at the worst possible time in horror movies for suspense.”

“He fell down. He actually fell down while running away. That was the worst thing he could’ve done. I thought that only happened in the movies.”

“Lived in Florida my whole life. This is pretty much how you get killed by a gator. Need to treat these animals with respect and act with caution in their environment.”
