Well you not supposed to use a baited hook.....hang em just about the water to keep the small ones and the turttles off of it if you were to use something like that
Trebble hook, some 40 pound braid and the fight is on w/o the bait.
Florida mis-manages there gators to the extreem. We NEED a season like LA has instead of the quota hunts we have now. Of course Florida cannot seem to even get the permit process right.
Now as far as the 2010 GATOR season goes.....we need a center, but we are still very good. Tough to lose the class we did and still be top of the heap but FL/AL in SEC championship
