750 lb. alligator caught in Florida Panhandle


Two young men made an unbelievable catch in Gulf County on Sunday. 

The men caught a 12-foot-4-inch-long gator that weighs about 750 pounds. Brandon Barfield and Brandon Cutchins discovered the gator around 3:30 Sunday morning and chased it for over four hours. 

They battled the gator on the rod and reel for over 30 minutes until finally catching it. They said the gator was a too big for their 14-foot Jon Boat, so they had to call to get help towing it back to shore.

The men say they have the proper tags and permits to harvest alligators in Gulf County. They plan to save the hide and meat from the gator.

The men said this is a big catch that they will remember forever.
