Remember how the state of Michigan is offering up $1 million to whoever can devise a plan to stop Asian carp from invading the Great Lakes? Well, we might have just found a solution . . . a really BIG solution.

According to a post on the NO LIMIT Bowfishing Guide Service Facebook page, this massive gator gar is a new potential Toledo Bend record. The Facebook post reads, “Congratulations to Gar Commanders on the potentially new Toledo Bend Gator Gar record 7′ 11.5″ 258 lbs. truly a once in a lifetime giant fish.”

Toledo Bend Reservoir is a man-made lake on the Sabine River, which sits between Texas and Louisiana. The lake is the largest man-made body of water in Texas, and it holds fish that follow the “everything is bigger in Texas” motto.

As you’ll see in the video, a backhoe was needed just to hoist the beast out of the boat:
