WhoDaMan has not lost track of his responsibilities to the wildlife of the Redneck Riviera. SonOfDaMan reported catching alligator gar and redfish in the same spot. I was afraid there might be some breeding activity between the two species and went to check it out. We missed several gar strikes that afternoon and as the tide picked up in the river I hooked this redfish.
SonOfDaMan snapped this picture just as the red was lunging for my throat. Fortunately its teeth became entangled in the massive amount of chest hair I have which kept it from ripping out my jugular veins. I used an old trick from the Greek octopus fisherman and bit it between the eyes to kill it. I thought it best not to publish these pictures as it wasn’t a pretty sight. This proves how aggressive hybrids can be. On an earlier trip SonOfDaMan tangled with this alligator gar.
Sorry about the bad photography on my part as the spots on the tail (very similar to a redfish’s spots) didn’t show up. The dynamic duo will be heading to Choke Canyon on Thursday evening for some night fishing to be followed up with a morning of water thrashing. More reports as they happen or close to it.

That is all we know at this time.... this is your "WhoDaMan" reporter on the Redneck Riviera bringing you another almost live...with an auto balanced and resized digital color report.
