this is a question directed at the rest of you southerners. i have been investigating the merits of using chum to catch more/bigger cats. i have even started gathering supplies. my question is: i fish in an area with too many alligators. if i use chum will it attract them by the dozens? i allready catch a few by rod-reel every year by mistake. its not that i even mind catching them. but, it has been my experience so far that if you get a few of them hanging around the boat, you dont seem to catch as many fish. does anyone have any experience with this? thanks, J.D.
