One summer I got myself in hot water chasing ablies with a Surfboard. There was enough "bump" to spend the out going tide surfing, I was riding a 8'6" Hamilton Stylist, took a break and could see the birds working and a fast moving school coming in within paddle range. Ran to the truck grabbed my 8wt tucked it into the back of my trunks with a handful of clousers wrapped in a bit of fleece. Well I tried to keep up with school as long as I could picking up a few turbo footballs when every mothers son with a fast boat saw the birds and came rushing in on me. My girlfriend drove home that night cause I couldn't even lift a cigarette to my lips. Bad move but it was fun!!

Down in Louisiana I saw a few gators that I could have placed a 12 inch ruler between their eyes and not touch either eye. I was nervous in the 18 foot Hell's Bay skiff let alone a kayak! I don't mind taking a few calculated risks, but the calculations have to come out in my favor! Kudos to you dare-devils. I envy your......shall we call it gumption....:p

Gary: Not for me either, that just looks to much like gator country. I'd feel much better in one of those flats boats.

Looked like it was towing him along at a fairly good speed there for a short time.

I seen this a few nights ago. Looks like a total blast! That red took off like a bullet. Closest I can get to this in Nebraska is carp. :D
