need help lake o clewiston

Post by eazy89 » Fri Aug 26, 2011 7:45 pm

Caught a huge gator 12 feet tied to boat bag stick blew up and sank. No way to kill him. Anyone gator hununting tonight with a bang stick.
Update:
I left the hatchet in the truck but a fire extinguisher and a scredriver worked along with the harpoon driver. Let's just say it was a hairy situation.

You should think about a cheap pistol to keep with you in the boat!

Easy89 do you have access to a knife or a hammer you can get to or did you sink in deep water? Do you have coordinates or a location someone can look for you. Can I make a call to someone for you to save your battery?

I think you meant the other fl cracker.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

The bang stick I made has worked great for many years and also has a leash so I cant drop it overboard... I also use a pithing spike, then cut the spinal cord... :D

Sorry Easy89... Wish I was closer!!!
Hope it all works out for ya...
Keep us up to date...
I would rather be lost in the woods, than found in the city!!

I took it that he lost the bang stick, I did not know that he sank the boat!
