I had a 12-foot gator following me when I was fishing a rather large lake in a rented paddleboat. Every fish I caught got the gator more and more interested and closer to the boat. Eventually, I gave up, and went back to shore, where the park ranger refunded my rental for the boat (didn't ask) and he immediately reported the nuisance gator to the proper wildlife people. Not too far from where I was fishing was a huge swimming dock/beach with about 100 summer camp kids in the water.
Usually here in Florida gators only become a problem when they 're too used to being around people. I've never had a problem with gators truly "in the wild".
