Report is in. My Marine buddy got a 9 foot 6 inch gator.
Still wants me too go out on the lake at night with him with a damn flashlight, bow and arrow and chase and kill gators who do not want too be chased and killed. He is allowed one more with his license.
Two nights ago he got a 12+ footer on the line. They should run in the 400 pound + range. Probably 500 + if they are eating good.
I was wrong about the hook on the bait. Guess you have to tie your bait with a rope to a buoy. No hook.
Gator hopefully swallows bait. Then you follow the buoy till you can get close enough to smack him over the head.
This one dragged him half way across Lake George.
Mr. gator said enough of this after about three hours and turned on the boat and him, almost flipping it and snapped the line.
Yup just my idea of fun. Being in the middle of Lake George at night, in the water with a bunch of pissed off gators.
Remember the final scene from Moby Dick. It was not a pretty picture.
Anyone in the A.O. wants to jump in with him. He still has a spot open.
Will await your P.M.s. Let me know how you make out in the morning.
What the hell did they do too you Marines in boot camp? I was scared just listening to his damn story.
