Gator time

By Gary Rankel

Nature Coast Kayak Fishers Club

Art Myjak paddled his last trip with me for awhile as he and his wife will be headed up north later this week for the summer.  We had a slow day as far as fishing goes, but a bit of excitement coming across a gator who seemed interested in Art’s Wavewalk.  I’ll be looking for company on my fishing trips this summer, so if any Wavewalkers up there want to join me, c’mon down.



Art fishing, unsuspecting… while the gator silently approaches…

    Thanks Gary,

    Funny story! 🙂

    Maybe the next modification to your Wavewalk should be to make it higher so it will be more gator-proof!!

    Well, I’m told gators can climb trees, so we’ll have to think of something else 😀
