This morning on the local news (WLOS-13) they were talking about someone finding human remains in the French Broad. That is kind of a ho-hum news, happens all the time. It was the 3 foot long alligator that they have been chasing on the upper river in transylvania county that raised some eyebrows. :eek: Imagine the look on some poor guy's face when that takes a swipe at his muskie plug.

umm that will be a fight.. but if i remember right musky-this is the correct spelling- fisherman normally use big heavy semi surf type tackle thowing hevy line/steel leaders.. a 3 foot gator won't weigh more than a big musky although the off road capabilities will make the fight interseting for sure..

you don't really need surf type tackle. a medium heavy bass rod is what I use, and as for the steel leaders, we are starting to use floroucarbon. Little more abrasion resistance without the big bulky leader. like the "all terrain vehicle" reference, that was cool:cool:

he's been caught, two students from brevard college and another guy caught him. at last report, he was headed to brunswick county to see about placing him in an educational program or a zoo. would keep the population of kayaking tourists at bay;)
