The first picture is kind of deceiving in that not seconds after it was taken the gator Skip is holding recovered from my ill placed banstick effort and jerked lose from his grasp.......and then after pulling the boat around some more managed to wrap himself up in the harpoon lines such that we had a time getting him untangled.
The second picture shows where the robbery took place. Look at the tail......a good 2 feet missing! Darn thing should have measured over 12 and been 500 pounds!
Still he was well over 400.....heck the legs alone weighed 45 pounds after they were skinned! And this was with the feet cut off......and yes, we sell the legs that way at the market, bone in.
