About Your Trip
Head out with Gator God Zac to hunt public waters around Central Florida. These gator hunts are super exciting and involved hunts targeting and stalking the right specimen, fighting him back to the boat with multiple rods, and taking home a trophy unlike any other! Captain Zac spends most of
... Read More his time hunting the St. John's River estuary honing in on flow through laks like Lake Monroe, Lake Harney and others.
In the state of Florida guns are not allowed to use a firearm at anypoint when killing a gator, and any bait used to attract a gator has to be attached to the boat in the state of Florida so there are no lines set over night. That's where having a profesional guide like Zac comes in handy: Knowledge of the water and the right equipment for the job are essential! He's been doing it for well over 10 years and is the best of the best.
Depending on what you want to do Captain Zac either likes to sight cast on them with treble hooks or bait them from afar with beef lung or floating chickens at the end of a rod and reel.
Baiting them on rod and reel is especially fun since you get to see the gator wallop your bait! This method is especially productive later in the season when the gators have grown wise to the boats in the area and all too often go under when you get within 300yds.
After the gator has crushed and swallowed that beef lung or chicken, you and captain Zac will stalk up on him and throw an initial hook into him to act as an indicator. Applying to much pressure on that first hook will all too often break him off.
Once the indicator is secured you and Captain Zac will throw a couple more treble hooks into him and fight him up to the boat. Once he is boat side Captain Zac will use his Bang Stick to dispatch the beast and haul him aboard to head back to the dock!
Captain Zac has a handful of tags for these trips, but he highly reccomends his clients bring their own Alligator tag for these trips as well. **If you have you're own tag he will cut out the price you paid for your tag and give you a discounted rate!**
Everything else is provided on board like rods, reels, baits, Bang Sticks, ropes, and a cooler for your beverages and snacks.
