    The dude in the mudboat is cutting the freeboard kind of close.  If one of those swamp lizards decides to climb in with him that could be funny!  Nice pics of the family

    Bass, Crappy called something like SacAlay which means Sack of Milk, catfish, mudbugs in traps, and the gators in this particular area are protected.  They duck hunt also but most other birds in the sancuary are protected and access to the nesting grounds is limited to certain times of year.  Brian Champlain our host is very interesting and it is his pic with the family.  He transitions from English to French seamlessly and the large 10 ft gator with her mouth open was gaurding her nest.  Brian got out of the boat to catch a lizard for my grandson and momma gator got a bit irritated and charged.  He held her off with a boat paddle and answered his cell phone to book another tour without missing a beat.  LOL  True story!
