Stupid Human Boating Tricks

Saw two guys in a small jon boat with a trolling motor. When I was out by the first island, where it's deep and swift, saw one of the guys paddling with an oar; they flashed a flashlight at me and paddled over, asked for a tow back to the beach. Battery was fine, they said; must be a short in the motor.

Red Sky at Night with JB Cornwell | The Everglades Adventure

Winter of 1970 I had been reading in Field and Stream about a new fishery in the canals along the new cross-Florida highway called Alligator Alley that crossed the Big Cypress and Everglades swamps. Ted Trueblood wrote about catching small tarpon near the western end and monster bass in the Everglades portion. I was determined to share that adventure. I had some very unusual catches. A gigantic bowfin that must have weighed 20 lb gave me a great fight. A small alligator attacked my plug and fortunately was not hooked but an alligator gar was. The gar was a small one . . . maybe 4-5 lb. Less fun occurred when I went to my stringer to get a couple of bluegills for breakfast and found a big cottonmouth trying to make off with one of my fish.
