Remote Control Gator Head - Maiden Voyage

I had found a video on Youtube a while back of a remote control gator head and the guy was chasing unsuspecting people in kayaks, canoes, etc. and thought, what the heck.... I'll try to build one of those. With a few clicks on Amazon (floating gator head) & eBay (remote control jet boat) and I've got one built. Took it out for the first run.....



I'm figuring a nice Jack Daniels beverage, sit on porch at the lake and see what kind of fun this thing can be

It would be fun until I plugged a .44mag size hole in it!

I was thinking the same thing....

That's too cool Tejun and would scare the crap out of me if I saw it coming towards me on the water...

Double tap to the head for sure....

In the right circumstances I could see it being fun. Being a kayak fisherman I can tell you coming up on a shark or even a manatee is pretty scary? When it clicks in your head that the large object you're looking at is alive it gets your blood pumping pretty good for a second... I'd suggest choosing your victims for faux gator attacks carefully so as to not have to rescue or perform CPR on the poor SOB you attacked!!!
That thing looks pretty real and in mucky water I could see it working as planned :-)

Don't Think So!!

After living in South Florida and fishing the Everglades for 21 years, I have learned that gators are NOT aggressive unless you encounter a female with a nest close by. For the most part, they are just curious. Leave them alone and they leave you alone.

I once was fishing Conservation Area 3A, in the Everglades, also known as "The Bombing Range", because it was used as such during WWII. You can still see the bomb craters!! Anyway..........I was in my 16 foot bassboat and a large gator swam by about a foot off the side of the boat. When his nose was even with the bow, there was still 2 feet of gator sticking out beyond the stern!!! That is an honest to goodness 18 foot alligator!! It was close to 2 1/2 feet wide, to boot!! The pressure wave from his tail/swimming action actually rocked the boat!! Biggest one I ever saw!!

There was also a 12 foot gator on the golf course in my community. The canal that flowed through the course was next to the green on the 18th hole. Wally used to sun himself ON THE 18th GREEN!! You could not see the green from the fairway, just the flag. Many golfers got their ball on the green, then topped the rolling hills and to there horror, found their ball laying next to the gator. I saw many of them walk away from the green, leaving their ball and noting to their companions, "I'll take a 5 on that hole!!" There were balls all over the green!!! Nobody wanted to challenge Wally for their ball, let alone trying to "play through"!!!!
