12-foot alligator catch follows an 11-footer caught the night before

Catching an 11-foot alligator might be considered a once-in-a-lifetime achievement, but four Florida Panhandle men who did that Wednesday turned around an captured a 12-foot gator the next night.

Late Thursday, Nick Naylor, John Booker, Kenny Way and Casey Shields caught a 12-foot, 6-inch alligator in Blackwater Bay, east of Pensacola. Using a fishing rod, it took the men about two hours to reel in the gator, Naylor said.

That catch came after the four caught an 11-foot, 7-inch gator in the same bay. They battled that 375-pound monster for three hours starting late Tuesday and into early Wednesday morning.
