    Default Croc concerns

    Quick question. My parents have a place in Key Largo and we fish quite a bit for sharks off of the dock. Yesterday my brother came across an 8 foot plus crocodile in the water. Curious to how aggressive these guys are normally. I don't want to tie into one with 650 pound leader.

    I dont really have concerns with crocs. I wear them sometimes. They are comfortable, offer grip, and absorb the sea! I know that people make fun of them...but I dont care and Im not concerned with it at all!


    Unless you meant a different Croc!!!!

    We use LP 16 or 18 circles with the barbs removed on 10 to 12 feet of leader at a minimum. We fish using conventional rods and swimming baits out or using a large spinner we can cast smaller baits (9500 Penn). We used a chopped bat to toss bait last year, and that may become this year's new exclusive method. I'm already concerned about manatee fouling up it's just another maybe I guess...

    I am guessing by the responses they aren't of much concern. Probably just exploring and long gone by now anyway. GoPro will be rolling and lights on lol. Going to attach a weight to the GoPro this year for on the dock. If it falls off I can find it in the morning. The damn floaty worked as promised. My camera floated away into the dark.
