But the record only lasted about an hour. Beth Trammell took a 13-foot, 5.5-inch long, 723.5-pound alligator early Sunday in Issaquenna County in the Yazoo Diversion Canal. It broke the previous weight record of 697.5 pounds. However, Mississippi Alligator program coordinator Ricky Flynt tells WLBT TV (http://bit.ly/1acITTA) that one hour after he certified Trammell's record, he certified another record-breaking gator. Dustin Bockman, a UPS driver from Vicksburg, took the 727-pound alligator in the Mississippi River in Claiborne County. It was 13-feet, 4.5-inches long. Bockman says catching the massive creature and bringing it onto his boat took hours. "When we finally got an arrow into him it took us another two hours to get him up close to the boat. He broke all the lines we could get in him. Finally, got a snare in him, we got him up high enough, and got a shot on him. All and all probably took us four, probably took us four-and-a-half hours to actually catch him from the first time we saw him. And then another four hours trying to load him in the boat and finally just gave him up and called for help." The current length record remains 13-feet, 6.5-inches. That alligator was taken on the Pascagoula River in 2008.
