There are very few things can ruin a good day spent fishing.
Maybe some bad weather, some obnoxious bozos cramping up your spot, sometimes the fish just aren’t biting… but like they say, a bad day fishing beats a good day a work.
Although, I don’t think they had getting eaten by an alligator on their “bad day of fishing” list.
A startling video out of Florida shows just how terrifying alligators can be, even out of water.
As the fisherman is posted up on the bank, wetting a line for some tarpon, a big old gator lays claim to his spot. Naturally, he was more than willing to oblige.
Adding to the suspense of the video is that the angler trips and falls while trying to flea the reptile.
Can you imagine the feeling of running from an alligator and falling ass backwards? The sheer panic that consumes your soul when you trip and fall, not knowing if this dinosaur is about to devour you leg… leaving you to die in the brush.
Spoiler alert… he didn’t die. But his day was over.
“Well, that puts an end to my tarpon fishing.”
Wow! Get back!
He attempts to scare the dinosaur away… doesn’t work.
Aaaand I am outta here.”
Yeah, time to go change your shorts…
Kayaker Gets Hit By Alligator & Tips Over Into River
Oh, hell no…
Look, I don’t spend much time out kayaking through the coastal rivers of North Carolina, but after this, I don’t really plan to.
Experienced kayaker Peter Joyce was out paddling down the Waccamaw River recently when out of nowhere, his kayak was charged by a hungry gator.
The gator hit so hard that it knocked the kayak over, except Joyce was able to grab hold of a branch to keep it from completely tipping upside down.
