Lance Burgos was on a fishing trip in Louisiana with his daughter when he saw a sudden tugging on the line. And, understandably, Burgos then went to pull his catch to the surface. But when he did, he realized that he’d hooked a deadly beast from the deep.

Burgos is a keen fisherman. In fact, he is so dedicated to the pastime that he often posts videos about his water-based exploits on his eponymous YouTube channel. And in 2016 he shared his most popular update yet.

Burgos had taken the video in question at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in Louisiana. The nearly 6,000-acre park sits in the Atchafalaya Basin, which happens to be America’s biggest swamp; for that reason, visitors are encouraged to make their way around the area by boat or along raised boardwalks.
