Default Things you see gigging

I've been thinking about convincing my the old man and future brother in law to take a trip with me. Both like to catch or drink and claim they were fishing, but I could spend two days without a fish as long as I was learning something. But sometimes it's the things no one else has ever seen that can convince someone to stay up all night. So what is the craziest things you have seen under the lights at night?

Years ago,wading at Ft.Pickens,by the campground for flounder, in mid November, walked up on a dead buck deer carcass with an aluminum arrow stuck in it.

In 2010, while floundering, I found a funeral urn with cremated remains in it floating in Santa Rosa Sound.

Also saw a alligator snapping turtle swimming around in the Sound as well.

Lots of foxes.
Bull Sharks feeding in a couple feet of water.
Crazy Meth heads on west end of Dauphin Island.
Snakes trying to get in the boat.

I ran into Phu about an hour after him and the 2 military guys he had with him saw the Skinny Dipping young ladies.
There was a lot of excitement in their voices.

All I ever see in old fat tourist that want to know what your doing.

I did haul some Asian guys back from Katrina after their 24'CC got beached on the Gulf side surf one night.
They sure were glad to see me. However they weren't real happy after getting a price from Sea Tow.

John you been anywhere yet?

Well, not in the water, but cruising the shoreline, there were 2 owls in a tree no more than 50' away. They started hooting at us. It was sort of like 2 old geezers on their porch in rocking chairs yelling "get off my lawn!"

Still lookin for the nekkid women...

No. Too busy or it's been too windy.
