Three Guys Snagged Florida’s Biggest Gator

This comes via the TC Palm, and it’s a big story. They scouted the same stretch of water Saturday, but had only seen one big gator close to the northern border of the hunting unit’s designated area. “Usually, big gators don’t make any bubbles, but I think this one was so big it was making a bubble trail as it walked on the bottom of the river,” Bishop said. “So with my spinning rod — the same kind I use for catching snook, tarpon or cobia — I made a cast about five feet ahead of it, and as I reeled the treble hook back to the boat, I felt it snag the gator.” Looks like these guys will be eating gator for weeks.-TO
