Two Florida men took fishing to a new level after catching a 13-foot, nearly 800-pound alligator by hand.

The alligator was caught in the St. Johns River near Jacksonville, WJAX-TV and WFOX-TV reported.

After finding the gator and realizing all they had was a few ropes, the men -- Keith Kelley and Kelly Sziy -- decided to spend four hours trying to catch it by hand.

Why? Why not?!
