My roommate, Marty Robinson, and I were pre fishing that lake two years ago and we came up on a gator...about 3-1/2ft long or so. He, not being from around the south, wanted to catch it. He couldn't understand why I immediately put down my rod and dug out my phone. I wanted to record his action....well...it went really badly. He said he never thought those things were that fast. I was like DUH!! Scared the [censored] out of him.
I wish I had not dropped my phone in the water at the ramp the next day. It was so funny to see how fast he could run from the front of the boat to almost on top of the motor.
