An Oklahoma man was in for quite the surprise when he recently went fishing at Lake Texoma near the town of McBride.

Oklahoma Game Wardens shared a photo of Tim Butler's catch on Facebook.

They say two campers set out several rods overnight last month hoping to catch a catfish.

Instead, Tim and Canton Stafford caught this massive 6.2-foot long Gator Gar!

The wardens say the gar's girth measured 30 1/2 inches.

McBride is located just south of Lake Texoma State Park.
