Would you drive a 14' jon boat through this?

    Ya'll are looking at this like it's a problem.
    Growing up in West Dade of the 50's,
    what I see is groceries and quality leather.
    Backstraps, ribs, hams, jowls, flanks and tails...tasty.
    That's the difference when you look at the world
    with the eyes of an apex predator.

    Brett, go for a swim with them and let's see who's the "apex" predator, eh!

    No problem...lemme see, it's around here somewhere...

    There it is, top shelf, storage bin 4.
    Mask, check
    snorkel, check
    fins, check
    net, check.
    tackle box, check
    lighter, check.

    Allrighty now, Lemme open this ole box up,
    nope, they ain't sweatin' yet, still got a few caps and fuses.
    Been a while since I've done this, hang tight for a sec....
    There, three oughta do it...
    Don't get too close... I expect this'll make some big splashes,
    and a few loud booms just before.
    Tom you hold the net, you oughta be able to ketch a few of the bigger chunks as they come back down.

    Now as my grandad said to the game warden when he lit the fuse back in the Turner River

    "You gonna talk, or you gonna fish..."

    I see no problem with goin' swimmin',
    it's just that timin' is everythin'.


    Tom...you still questioning my ability to be an apex predator?
    On an industrial scale?

    No joke, I did a fishing tournament in Indiantown once where I had to sign a release form saying I would not use dynamite for "fishing".

    Now you know, if that was in the release form, that somebody must have tried it before!

    Got a kick out of that.

    Normally they ignore you but if they inadverdantly knocked you over in the middle of a fray.. you have had it!

    a few couple decades ago I was rowing my 12' jon boat with my brother when I noticed his eyes get huge. A few feet away on shore there was a really fat dinogator basking in the sun. "He won't mess with us" the gator "expert" proclaimed (me). Just then this monster dove off the bank into the canal right under us, I swear I could hear his scutes grind against the hull. We just froze in place waiting to be devoured. Nothing happened, we just put our hearts back in our chest and laughed like hyennas. We looked over our shoulders the rest of the day.
