I heard something about this awhile back but the source didn't know squat.

Did anyone else hear or know about this Blue Water Gator hanging around a rig 20 miles out or was it an urban fishing legend?

that he escaped from the sewers.........travelled north, and for awhile lived in Lake Placid.......then travelled south, to our waters, and is surviving, by hitting hooked up billfish?

Me and a buddy were talking about this subject monday. My Buddy was Tarpon fishing about 15 miles off shore out of Galveston. Said the were just driftin with the line's out ,when a 6'-7' alligator swam up to the boat . Said it hung around for a minute then took off headed south.
I had heard that too much Salwater will cause them to go blind though ? Anyway that was one lost Gator

Someone posted a bunch of pics after one of the monsoons last year showing several gators & large cotton mouths on some rigs. supposedly they washed out in the floods. Can't remember who it was but I recall it being abunch of pics. Not sure how far out they where.

Is the blue water in now? Last time I went out, over 50 miles, no blue water.

My vote is for the 8' Bull. The gator can get ahold and roll but I think the bull would take a big bite out the gator first and that would be all it would take.

There was a story with pictures about a gator ~20 miles offshore on RodnReel about a month back. That may be where the story originated.
