When Mary Ellen Mara-Christian went hunting for an alligator at Lake Marion on Wednesday, September 15, she certainly wasn't expecting the 13-foot, 1,025 pound alligator she hooked. 

Check out the story and video at WIS News 10 in Columbia.

For comparison of how big that is a recent 11-foot, 500 pound gator also made the news, but they are known to reach 16 feet and weigh up to 1,200 pounds.
