I have run into a really big gator in brackish water, say 11 ft long.

I enjoy fishing the spot from shore for snook but the gator seems to be getting bolder and gets too close for comfort when I catch a fish and am releasing it. And, in this spot I need to wade at least a foot deep to fish it properly. I hate to be scared away from good fishing by a gator but?

Any of you had a similar experience?

I see in another thread where there are a few big gators on Sanibel causing concern to our kayakers.

I do not trust the big ones at all and try to stay away from them.

Things could have gotten really dicey when I used to hang caught fish overboard on a stringer.

Now any fish I keep are put in a cooler chest behind my seat.

Good idea about the cooler. I used to keep fish on a stringer as well. You never know!
