  • The big surprise!!

    Was fishing the Indian River in Sebastian, Fl. Great pace for Sea Trout and Snook and Redfish.
    Was looking out about 150yd. and saw a log drifting by.
    Then I realized the tide was going the other way???
    Thought Manatee??
    I tossed my lure in the general direction of the log.
    The log about 5-6ft stopped and went towards the spot where the lure landed....
    First thought Manatee and then I saw the scutes on the tail.
    CROCOIDILE !!!!
    I'd heard they were in the river but didn't think I'd ever see one.
    I tried to get pics but way too far away.
    Made the rest of the fishing a little more tense!!




    Buy American made Cars and Trucks!!!Towing insurance for a boat,a GREAT thing.
    ​Tools to make my life easier: Battery tester, die grinder, temp.gun, compression tester, DVA meter.

    In Scenic , Beautiful San Sebastian by the sea Florida

    Are you sure it was a Crocodile and not an Alligator? Gators are the more plentiful types around here and there in Florida. I think there are a few Crocks in Florida as well, but Gators rule everything and the more likely type seen.

          The alligators don't like the salty water where I live.
          ​They have seen them here before. Google: Sebastian Inlet Crocodile.
          ​The local lakes and impoundments have alligators. The impoundment next to the local Wally World in Sebastian has one alligator about 5ft.
          ​Crocks They estimated there are up to 1200 in Fl.

          I was wade fishing in front of my place on the river.
          Made the wading a bit more tense.

            I understand what you are saying. You really need to be careful when wade fishing. They don't seem to care if they want to taste people it seems.
