Default Weirdest things seen while gigging

I know when you are out there at night you see some weird stuff..... 2 years ago was the craziest we say about a 40 lb tarpon in our light.

then one night we were trying to gig flounder and this damn gator wouldn't leave us alone





then we were trying to gig flounder this other night and came across a grouper honey hole and sheepshead mixed in with flounder





The fog got so bad one year you couldn't even see 2 feet in front of you we were gigging ft mcrea and almost got lost... we couldn't see the lighthouse, the island the only way we could tell is my putting the lights in the water and seeing if it got shallower or deeper til we got on the beach until the fog cleared...anyone remember that night?

Post some stories guys

I went last week and saw a big ray that was at least 4 feet across, I know its not weird but I was surprised at the size of it. Then on Saturday night I saw a big gar prolly 5 feet long. I'm just glad he didn't go after me.

I have had a coupleof small gators that wanted to stay just ahead of the boat in the shadow of the light. Also saw a concrete flounder in navy point. It was painted up to look just like a flounder. My buddy gigged it.

It's good the man didn't catch you with gigged groupers.

Not critizing. I would have put the gig to them too.
