Gator

Yesterday was a really nice day, so we decided to go try the canal for a few hours. The fishing was great. We caught several bass on flukes fished both weightless and with a 1/16 oz weight when the wind picked up a little. No huge fish, but several decent fish like the one in the picture.

I did hook into a monster snook on the fluke. I saw it sitting in the grass and pitched to it and she nailed it and took off, pulling drag, and jumping. It was an awesome 10 seconds before the hook came loose.

The coolest thing of the day was seeing this gator. He was so calm and quiet. We were able to get pretty close to him to take this picture. We estimated him to be around 7 or 8 feet. We love seeing gators.
