Teen Catches 800 lb alligator in Texas

Braxton Bielski and his father Troy are on 'Starting Point' talking with John Berman and Christine Romans about this Texas teen's amazing catch.

Braxton Bielski caught the alligator that was 14 foot, 3 inch and 800 pounds! It turns out the brave teen broke a record. This alligator is the largest ever caught in Texas.

Braxton claims that the trick is to use raw chicken to catch a gator.
