Captain Mark Robinson is a fishing guide. He delivered some
really delicious fresh caught flounder to our house
a couple of weeks ago.
But Mark does not only cast his bait for fish ~ he
also baits and traps alligators. He caught this one
in Calhoun County Texas just a couple of days ago.
Wow 13 feet 4 inches and approximately 780 pounds.
He is hoping to win the gator fest this year.
I for one would hate to have to tangle with this
bad boy! Bentley and I will not be visiting any of the
nearby lakes or bayous any time soon. I have no
desire to get up close and personal with any of
these gators. Scary stuff. But I can't help but
wonder how many pairs of boots will be made from
the hide of this poor creature.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
