Evans said he and his group, which included his friend, Jeff Gregg; Jeff’s son, Justin; and a guide, launched their boat at around 10 p.m.
Within 30 minutes, they had spotted what they thought was a large gator and had attempted to snag it.
The slippery gator got out of the first hook, and Evans’ group pursued it for another 75 yards or so before they had him hooked a second time.
“That is when the work began,” Evans said. “We are still sore (four days later). It was hard enough to get the head and shoulders in the boat.” Jeff Gregg said words can’t describe the experience.
“It’s like a dream,” he said.
