After all the rains this past June, wade fishing the middle coast had one surprise after another. Alligators were everywhere near Matagorda Island. We had several situations where alligators charged our top water lures.

We have the tags for the hunts. Some people have boots, wallets, and such made. Skin'em, tan'em or sell it...Yes to all

These are between 8 and 9 foot.

Dang! Nice going.
I tell ya I had a dive job{mait irrigation on a intake} in Friendswood about a yr. ago and some fool had dropped off a cayman at the course irrigation pond it got within 5' of me and BAM carroll childers had to shoot him. No way would I have made it out with all my gear on. It was about 5-6' . Some fool decided to get rid of a pet.
I say way to go!!!
Hey check out Oyster creek a few weeks back Lynn and I saw one about 10-12' on the backside of the homedepot off 10 .
I see BIG ones all around Houston.
Guess they have to live somewhere though. CB
