No lie I would have shit my pants right there. Alligators are basically dinosaurs and have been on the Earth a lot longer than humans. And there is a reason for that. They are nasty, eat shit and anything else in or near water which could also be you and your son trying to catfish. So no thank you. I will not be catfishing anytime in a fucking kayak with my kid as some monster gator lines me up on some chicken bait. Call me old fashion. Call me a pussy. Whatever. I'd rather be wearing gator boots than playing tummy sticks with his intestines.
