I just posted a question about using Seine nets in a river (getting my money's worth of posts this morning) and I mentioned not wanting to entangle gators in my net. What I didn't mention was that I have even less of a desire to get myself entangled with gators I used to fish chest deep in gator occupied waters, but lately have begun questioning the sanity in doing so...There's a few gigantic bulls I've seen lately in the river where I fish, and I'm hesitant to stroll around among them (for the purpose of using the seine net). Am I being a little girl about it, or would you caution against it? After all, I swim with sharks everytime I go surfing. (Although when they bite you, they don't submerge you underwater and spin in circles like a washing machine stuck on overdrive. What a horrible way to go that would be. ) So for those Cajuns and fellow lowcountriers around: Is it really something not to be too afraid of, or am I right to avoid them outside of a boat? Thanks.
