Just curious....For those of yall that jug, limb line, or trotline fish do yall have much issue with gators? I used to limb line fish a lake back in Georgia and we were forever dealing with gators on the lines.

I've never had problems with the gators. That being said, I have lost a jug or two in the vicinity of a known gator hang out. A good cat will move a jug all over the lake if he wants to and I'm sure any gator worth his salt wouldn't have any trouble pulling a little pool noodle under the water. I typically fish catfish on the south end and there tends to be a higher concentration of gators more up the lake from where I fish. Its always a possibility to snag one. Just be prepared when you pull on that line!

I have never seen a gator in Lake Houston, but I typically fish in deeper water. I have seen some gar fish but I am sure everyone has seen those. I will be OK with going many more trips and not seeing a gator.

The used to be a 6 foot gator who lived in the cove immediately south of the Ponderosa bridge, on the east side. It would come out if you were fishing there waiting for people to throw a fish to them.

Sticko,

Hahahaha...I had seen that one on the news when it happened.

We use to run into them quite regularly when we limb lined back in Georgia. I can neither confirm nor deny that there might have been grease involved afterwards a few times. :roll:

I had always figured there would be more in Lake Houston but Ive only run into two while kayaking the East Fork.
