We bought a house 8 days ago on Mulat and have seen the same 6-8 foot gator twice cruising 150-200 ft away from our dock. Both times was in the evening time and the kids were already out of the water. I have been looking at ways to make a netted swimming area without much luck. Will be contacting FWC SNAP hotline to see what they say. I have been in Florida all my life and around gators all my life but something feels different. I hate to tell my kids they can't swim anymore since we just moved in but I don't feel comfortable. They are 8 and 9 so not very big and splash around alot. Seems like a calling card. Am i being paranoid?
