See you later, alligator. That's exactly what this guy thought when he realized he accidentally caught one.

This man was fishing last week at Lake Fausse in St. Martinville, La. when he discovered something nibbling on his line. That "something" turned out to be an alligator and automatically earned the man a permanent place in the fishing tales hall of fame.

It's hard to tell the animal in question is a gator, so watch for the slo-mo replay toward the end of the video for confirmation and be prepared to be scared right out of your socks. This man sure looked like he was and would be totally fine with being landlocked for the rest of his days.

Yup, this guy couldn't paddle away from the sharp teeth of the alligator fast enough. Heck, who could?
