Wow, glad your son wasn't hurt. I've had some close encounters with gators, but never had one get that close. Now I was in Okeechobee years ago wade fishing with my stringer following behind, when I felt something tugging on my stringer. At first thought it was the fish, but finally turned to see two moccasins fighting over my fish. Decided to let them win and wade quickly away. We enter their world.
Its a wonderful day in the neighborhood!

Man I’d rather fight off a shark or alligator as opposed to a gang of moccasins.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Cast nets are east to learn to throw. Evolution is good.

Just realized this post is from 2012, I was looking for the news story and wondering who the heck was spear fishing mullet in February. I feel dumb.

I’ve bumped up a few old topics in the past after searching for them but that’s not what this was. It was right there in the list. I’m guessing my fat fingers hit something besides “next” or “2” and I ended up here. It hasn’t been the coldest February. I just figured somebody lucked up in a creek lol! Not to mention the gator. I saw 1 at the head of the Wacissa the other day.
