Hello Steve! Your posts this time of year make me very jealous. Here in MI, I have 6 degree weather and just got hammered last night with 10" of snow! I got to get out of here! Know of any jobs in south FL! Ha...
Howdy from Texas, Steve.I need to say, you posted some really great pictures here and I really enjoyed looking at them. I'm glad I came across your blog and for sure will be back for more.Since you posted the image of this pretty nice gator, I got a question for you.Have there ever been any gator attacks towards kayaks reported in FL? We have quite a few gators around here too but I never really have seen any while fishing from the yak. I usually fish medium to bigger size lakes or the bay area. The last time I saw some gators close, for my personal taste even too close, was while night fishing with a friend and his kids from the banks of an actually small lake in SE Texas. There were at least 8 or 9 and some of them in the 10ft range coming up again a little bit closer to the banks each time after we saw them diving. For the kids safety we quit fishing that night.
Tex,I don't know if gators have attacked kayakers. I haven't heard of any attacks nor have I had a close encounter. Still, you should always be careful.
Great pictures!! That looks like a lot of fun! I just started following
