Fishing from Kayaks and Canoes New Topic Printer Friendly Version

  Whenever I paddle down in NC
  Posted by: TrevorN on May-25-12 12:34 PM (EST)

I now carry a stainless steel Colt .45 in the kayak to deal with the gators. I started doing it after being followed by a 14' Alligator while fishing in the New River near Snead's Ferry. I didn't have a small dog in the boat but apparently he thought I looked edible.

I know it is illegal to carry a pistol in the boat, and I know it is illegal to shoot gators but I would rather deal with a judge than a toothy prehistoric reptile that wants to eat me for dinner.
