This afternoon while fishing near the dam on the main lake Don and I saw what looked like a beaver swimming in the distance. I noticed something ahead of it about 18" moving along with it. As we watched something broke the surface about 8' behind it, like a black stick or snake. We decided to get closer to see what it was. When we got within about 50' we realized it was an alligator, a really big alligator. Head was about a foot across and total length was about 10'. Don was videoing it with his phone. We were about 20' away when it spooked and dove out of sight. Never saw it again. If the video turns out I will post it.
Wouldn't have been surprised to see it up a creek or the river but down by the dam???
